I brewed this single cup basket style with 1 tsp. The water was a rolling boil. The 1st cup was very good when the tea cooled a bit. The usual sweet flowery nectar that we have come to love. This tea has a very calming yet not tiring energy. Something so nice and relaxing is better suited for later in the day. As always the 2nd cup seems to open up and awaken. My supply of this is running low. I will miss it when it’s gone. We will see what this spring brings….
