This is a tea that smelled better than it tasted. The aroma made me think of ring-pops (the plastic ring with a candy jewel that was so popular when I was a kid), and with such a fun smell I had to buy it. I found that temperature and steeping time were really important with this tea (it was very easy to make it too bitter). I bought way too much of it, but I was able to finish everything I bought (so it wasn’t that bad) once I had the temp and time down. I drank it at work and appreciated the caffeine boost right before teaching my morning class. However, I was RELIEVED when I finally finished what I’d purchased and I won’t be buying this again.
