Steeped 5 minutes with near boiling water and drank it warm.
I picked this up on a whim thinking that I wouldn’t really like it, but something about it was just intriguing. Well, I really like it. Basil and mint are wonderful in tea. The main flavor is basil on an earthy, smooth base with a touch of sweet mint. The tea has no bitterness or astringency. The aftertaste is very short and is mostly minty. This does seem more highly caffeinated than an average cup of tea to me. Delicious.
