So my first rating on Steepster can be called nothing but a head smacking moment. I am new to proper brewing and I have had this tin of tea since I received it as part of a Christmas package. I received this tea and another that I finished long ago because I could never get anything out of this one. What I mean is that I was so frustrated with it that it never went any deeper than a light yellow and had absolutely no flavor. WTH? I mean I was boiling the water, probably rolling, so what is going on with this tea. For almost a year I just thought it sucked.

So today. I am left with the left overs in my cabinet and I decide to steep a cup of this as I am into a cup of light tea and I really want to make it a little sweet. So, I heat some water to the point just before a boil and set my steepster app to white tea. What happens? I get this lovely, deep honey color tea with very pleasant flavor. I’m astonished that I have wasted 48 out 50 bags with boiling water. #49 I get it right and begin to like the tea. head smack I can finally taste the ginger and smell the lovely peach aroma. It’s a real treat. I think this tea needs to be in my cupboard forever, just because.
