This tea (loose) is my go-to cuppa when I want a black that will pick me up a bit but still be comforting. Love the floral and citrus scent and the fact that you can actually taste them (but they don’t overpower the tea). I take it with 1-2 tsp of sugar per mug, and a splash of milk (doesn’t curdle despite the citrus peel). This is a pretty forgiving tea – I put too much milk in the first cup but the flavor still came through. Oversteeping gives me caffeine jitters but the tea isn’t too bitter.
