I’ve had this tea for 4+ months in a bag. I’m not sure how that effects the tea. This is also the last of my supply of this tea. Brewed a 20oz pot of tea. The first cup tasted like paper. The second was much more pleasant. It was refreshing, clean, clear. It would pair well with shortbread or shortcake. This tea would be fun to add stuff to. I was thinking about adding some dehydrated tart apples or possibly strawberries. If you are looking to tweak a tea then this is your best bet for a white tea.
