I was so glad I got this tea. My order kept crashing when I bought it and Frank was so helpful in making sure it got through.

I was able to get three steeps out of this. Generally I prepare a pot so I used two teaspoons to approximately 16 oz. of water. I haven’t gotten to using a thermometer yet, so what I do on a first steep of green or white is just allow my water to boil, open the water kettle and let it cool down for seven minutes, then pour the water and steep for 1:30 minutes. The first steep was a wonderful blend of lemon, lime, and meringue. The green tea was a really nice base for this. No sugar needed. I noticed as it cooled down the flavors sweetened a little more, this would make a fabulous iced tea. The second brew was (water boil, open kettle for five minutes) steeped for 2:15, still wonderful but not as creamy. The third brew (water boil) steeped for 3 minutes, still had some citrus notes with the green tea. I probably could have gone for a fourth steep, but didn’t.
