My first taste was “as is” and I didn’t find it objectionable, but not to my liking. So this time I followed (sort of) the recommendations others had made. I poured some boiling water through the tea basked, then steeped it. Ok, it still isn’t to my liking, but almost. I might consider trying another small sample pack sometime, but there are many other teas to try first.
