This tea smells lovely, but after steeping, it doesn’t hold up to the lovely smell. It ran a tad bitter without tasting all that fruity. Then, I did something else after it cooled down. I reboiled the tea (without the leaves). I did this several times throughout the day and I feel almost blasphemous in saying it. Each reboiling improved its flavor. It made it richer and notably more robust. I toned it down with a little German Rock Sugar from Teavana. This is one of those teas that I prefer the second, reheated cup to the first freshly steeped one….which is the case as well with other Tropical Tea Company teas I own.
