I ordered this one before Christmas and am just getting around to trying it today. The tea smells really strong in the bag, and it is a lot of fun to look at. I picked around trying to get a little bit of every ingredient (and there are a ton! so there was a lot of rummaging).
I steeped it about 6 to 7 minutes and then pulled the tea bag out. I let it cool for a bit and took a sip. I am not sure how I feel about it. I thought it was a little tart and could not pick out any specific flavor, but would have been able to drink it straight. It was a very pretty red color.
I added a little honey and I thought it tasted much better, sweeter and not as tart. I think this one will make a great Iced Tea during the summer, but for now, I think I will keep it in the cupboard.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 6 min, 30 sec

I am on a quest to try 175 teas in the next 366 days (yay leap year!) and review them all on steepster as well as in my blog. If you would like to help me out by sending a sample or two, send me a message!

My Ratings:
90-100 My Favorites! Keep in cupboard always.
70-89 Pretty Good! Would not mind drinking, would not mind having
40-69 Various levels of drinkable, would not buy again, but if it was given to me, I’d accept it.
20-39 Might be able to choke it down, many shortcomings, trade it away!
1-19 Gross. Pour it down the sink. Flush it. Give it away. Just get rid of it.
