I didn’t like this tea when I started my cup. By the time I finished I was enjoying it. It is not especially complex but then again they have only been making teas in South Carolina for a few years. It has a malty and slightly bitter taste with a slightly sweet finish. I brewed it for 3 minutes at boiling with 3 tsp tea in an 18 oz pot. It is not as good as Chinese tea but I think it worth a try.
