i have been drinking this tea for about 2 months now. I have liked it from the start, but the other day I wanted to play around with it. So I put some extra tea in so i could get a stronger flavor. I normally steep it 5-6 minutes, but this time i only did about 4-4:30. Made a huge difference. All of the flavors stood out more but at the same time blended together. A smooth taste. i am going to be making it that way from now on.
