Really enjoyed as a daily tea the orange and spice compliment the tea to give a well bodied cup. Over steeping will give a powdery spice taste that feels flat in the mouth before getting bitter that is eliminated with a touch of added sweetness. I generally steep a maximum of twice 4:15 initially 4:30 for a final pot. Do not bother buying anything smaller than an 80 cup tin as the iced tea and infusions with this tea are also amazing in the summer. I have also added some while making oatmeal in the mornings.
