Bought a tin of gasp tea bags at a local bagel shop (bags, because they did not have the loose leaf pf this blend). I don’t know how long these have been on the shelf, or whether I’m just way past tea bags now. I was really hoping to love this tea. Rather, it was flat, like a can of diet coke left on a hot deck midsummer (not that I drink much diet coke any more). I’m wondering if the loose leaf would be better. A girl can hope…

I have never been happy with Republic of Tea’s offerings. And I want to like it. They sound like they’ve got it goin on. Like Celestrial Seasons, the write-ups are dih-VINE, but the actual brew lets me down. The amounts of leaf in theRofTea bags is pretty stingy, even for a mere 250mL / 8oz serving. I’ve heard of other Steepsteries using two bags per serving.
