I love this tea. I tend to start the day with a red tea and this is often the one I choose. I find it smooth and the added tangerine flavor a delight. I get four steepings — the first two are for 1 minute, the third for about a minute and a half, and the fourth I let sit on the leaves for a long time. My favorite is the second and I savor that one. The first steeping and part of the third go into a thermos cup to enjoy during my commute to work.
