Bought on sale, so I can’t complain too much.
Maybe I steeped it for just long enough to make it quite bitter, but I highly doubt that a few seconds made such a high difference. I’ve had it a few times before this, and I found the taste to be adequet. Pretty dull, but it does leave a pleasant aftertaste on the tongue. Not sure what ginseng tastes like, and am still not fully certain what it is supposed to taste like, after having drunk this tea.
The tea bags smell lovely, but it doesn’t equate a wonderful taste, at least iced. I think it tastes vastly better warm.
