I really enjoyed the bright verbena and lemongrass high notes, balanced by the earthy oolong second. I think it would be easy to miss the oolong when it is under-steeped, I learned that out of stubborness when I let it steep for a full ten minutes, I was entirely determined to get some body out of it. It ddi, and further brewing made me stick to a minimum five minute steep.

Other than that, the only thing I noted was that if you enjoy a little sweet in your tea, honey was much nicer than sugar for this blend. Something about the lemon makes standard white sugar taste almost metallic – bad bad bad. Honey, however, seemed to blend much more smoothly.

…verbena & lemongrass interesting combination with Oolong. Actually I never heard or even thought about that. Will keep that in mind for coming summer and simply do my own blend.
