I’ve had this for a while but I don’t drink it too often. I experimented a lot with this tea, as I received a big batch as a gift.
Brewing it Teavana’s way (1tsp per 8oz water at 195F), I found it a little flavorless and uninteresting. I tried brewing it gong-fu style and got a much better result.
Using lots of leaves and short steep times, this tea makes a very interesting cup. The wet leaf smells fantastic, like hot raisins mixed with other dried fruit. The taste is lightly toasty, with sweet (dried) fruity undertones.
I enjoyed this tea even though I feel it’s a little pricey.
