Not going to rate this until I try with double the leaf. I used 1 tsp in my 12 oz mug, which is usually ok, but seemed rather weak to me with all my teas I tried today. This tea brewed up a nice transparent orange color, not what I was expecting from a black tea, but will try again with double the exposure. I had it in a travel mug while running errands and left it in my car, my car now smells deliciously spicy and citrusy. Will post again once I try with more leaf.
