This tea smells sooooooo wonderful! Very pleasantly lemony. When oversteeped it’s one of the worst teas I’ve tasted, but when steeped properly it is easily among my favorites.
The first time I brewed it, I followed H&S suggestion of steeping it for 3 minutes, but I may have lost track of time and let it go on for 3:30. To me it tasted way oversteeped and it was truly awful. I tried adding a bit of honey to tame the bitterness, but it didn’t help.
For the second steeping I let it go for just 1:15, which was perfect for me. It’s a very nice, bold gunpowder with a wonderful lemony smell and taste that’s strong but not overpowering.
