Great green flavor without being too overwhelming. Fairly forgiving green tea but be careful not to oversteep. 3 minutes is plenty of time for the flavors to develop in the cup.
4 tsp. @ 208º in 20 oz. teapot for 7 minutes. This tea offers a mild pick me up and, although I don’t know if it really does this or if I think it does because the package says so, I do feel more focused when I drink this tea. This is a good thing, because this tea is my second pot of fuel for my paper writing today.
4 tsp. @ 208º for 7 minutes in 20oz. teapot. This is my favorite tea from Teavana. It is sweet, complex, nicely spiced, and very soothing. Today it is fueling my paper writing.
Stepped down to 1 tsp @ 205º for exactly 5 minutes. I’ve been oversteeping this one lately and using too much tea. This time around the tea is really showing its flavors well and the bitterness I’ve been experiencing is nearly absent.
Took it up to 2 tsps @ 180º for 8 minutes and got a much spicier, tastier tea. Previously the tea had been much weaker than I like and this combination really worked well for me this morning
1.5 tsps. @ 208º for 5 minutes. Seems I have oversteeped this time around. Getting a lot of bitterness from the leaves that’s hiding the sweetness of the mango. Perhaps, though, this tea is just a bit stronger than I expected.
1.5 tsp @ 180º for 8 minutes. Perfect spices and flavors.
Rich flavors, big body, big aroma. Definitely recommend this one.
2 tsp, 180º for 7 minutes. Rich spices made even richer with the addition of vanilla. The Rooibos leaf really shines in this tea.
Steeped 2 tsp @ 208º for 5 minutes. Wonderful flavors with a mango aroma. Very well balanced black.
