I followed the suggested directions on the tin and found the flavor too light. Steeping it a bit longer made all the difference in the world to me.

First steep was still good, but very light. The deeper steep was a vast improvement. The green tea was very very mellow which I liked in combination with the toasted rice and popcorn flavor. I was hoping that I’d like this one and I wasn’t disappointed. I can understand completely why others may not like it.

In the tin it smells delicious and popcorny. While it was steeping, my kitchen smelled like air popped popcorn.

In the cup it smells like stale wet popcorn which is about the only bad thing I can say about the tea.

And even though I like most of my tea without sugar or cream, I had to at least try a bit of sugar and it wasn’t very good, but someone may like it. It just made me grimace and go back to the pure tea.

If the flavor is too light you could also try adding more tea. I usually steep it at almost double strength.
