I am really sad. I was looking forward to this tea. It sounded amazing online!!! And when I opened it the colors were beautiful, but the smell, I could not get past. I was a funky, different smell. But I decided, what the heck, why not! I overnighted this one in the fridge and the color was just absolutely breathtaking. A color I have never seen before. Unfortunately the flavor, did not agree with me. The ginger was very overwhelming for my taste. I felt like I was eating the ginger you get with your sushi. The leaves after steeped were so beautiful though! I would keep this tea just for the look… I am really sad that I did not like this tea. I will do a hot steep before I give up on it though. Maybe it will change my mind.
