You can always tell I enjoy a tea when I review it over and over. I’ll review bad teas, but since I won’t ever drink that tea again (usually) I don’t put out many reviews on it. (Which, all that makes sense, really, but some people will drink things more than once or re-visit things even if they didn’t like it before, and I usually don’t do that.)

Anyways, this tea, as some of you may know if you read my past reviews, started out REALLY bad for me, but once I found the perfect steeping method for it, it was truly phenomenal. If it were possible to bottle Heaven, I think this tea would be one of the ways you could do it. It has a taste that just makes me feel really good, almost like a high, but just a really pleasant, soft feeling, not anything rough or over the top. It’s a really great tea, people.

I will warn though, you HAVE to get the steeping right. Only use a medium amount of leaf, if you are using a regular mug, and 3 or 4 minutes is ENOUGH. No boiling water—it can be screaming hot, but not a direct boil. I let my kettle sit for at least two minutes before I pour it, maybe even more. Lots of sugar, and it can go with or without cream, but I drank it without this time and I prefer it with, personally.

I hope that if you try this tea, it works out for you, because it’s a really great tea!
