This loose tea has chamomile, ginger, and rose petals, all of which the alike-named tea bag lacks, among other differences. With the look and aroma of a great potpourri, this is a fluffy tea, so i used 2 tsp. for my cup. Boiling water on it, steep 7 min. It makes a bright, clear yellow liquid, and I had mine hot with sugar. Satisfied my yen for dessert. Tangy, yet sweet and soothing.
