Well, this was my very first steeped brew ever. And the only one so far. I was looking for a healthier means of improving my overall well being and heard of the benefits of tea (Especially this one). I cant give anything on comparison to other tea’s, but I can say that the scent is enlightening. The taste is something very different on the other hand and does have a very earthy taste to it. Plain, mellow and light with little flavor, but does not take away from the fact that the benefits of this brew is great from what I read. Worth the try and looking forward to my new exploration.
