I really enjoy this tea in the summer since it blends well with a lot of other teas to make delicious iced teas. I’ve steeped it with Pineapple Kona Pop in 8oz of water for 10 minutes, 2 tsp of rock sugar and add 8oz of ice and it is fantastic! It is great with Teavana’s Lemon Lime Kampai Rooibos and Wild Orange Blossom, brewed the same as previously stated. Steeping it for 10 minutes in these blends did not taste bitter to me at all, and this tea seems pretty versatile for experimenting with other fruity blends if you like variety. The tea also wasn’t bad hot, but it is so refreshing iced that I prefer it iced.
