So this is my first taste of loose leaf tea. I let the boiled water sit for about 3 minutes to attempt to reach the 180 degree temp, and then steeped for about 3 minutes as well. Don’t know if I hit the right temperature, but thats what it’s all about, experimentation. The aroma of the dry leaves doesn’t really match the aroma of the tea in my opinion. But the taste is really nice. It’s very basic with a mild hint of the citrus flavor. It leaves a sweet aftertaste on the palette. Great introduction into loose leaf teas!
