This tea is such a lovely surprise. I didn’t expect to like it nearly as much as I do. I am gulping it down hot. I use boiling water with this and have generally been steeping it about 5 minutes, but there is no bitterness or astringency, so I could probably steep it longer. At 5 minutes I’m getting 3-4 steeps with the same leaves. The first 3 steeps taste very similar. The fourth steep has much less citrus flavor, but still tastes good. I use 1 tsp leaves per 1 cup water.
I’m not sure how to describe this. It smells like sweet citrus and tastes like sweet citrus. The base is foresty. It’s not peaty, but more woody or leafy. There is a slight citric sourness to it as you would expect with citrus flavoring. The foresty taste is on the forefront with the main body being sweet citrus. There is little to no aftertaste. Just delicious.
