This is the first tea I ever bought in loose leaf form, or brewed myself. Tried this as an iced tea in the store, and was sold. 4 oz. Brought it home but did not make it until a couple nights ago. The taste is herbaceous and vegetal, and reminds me of being outdoors in the woods. The first hot sip was heavenly and very comforting, and I was pleased to find that even a slightly long steep time did not make the flavor overly harsh. Even as it cooled, the flavor was still wonderful. I managed to get two additional steepings from my leaves, with a gradual mellowing of flavor occurring on each re-steep.
