To start, this tea was an amazing deal, I got one pound for 13 bucks on amazon. When brewed correctly with 2 tsp. per 8oz. with boiling water for 7 minutes, it tastes amazing. It has a beautiful deep reddish amber color that goes hand in hand with the taste. This tea has a very strong aroma of acorns, and tastes woody, nutty, sweet, and has slight notes of honey.
