The aroma is fantastic. The taste is a little bland on my first try. Luckily I have a full 2 oz. so I can play around with it a little. First steeping was only 2 min. I made a new pot and steeped for 3 min. I also put just a little more leaf. I wish the amount section below let us put in half teaspoons. I would say I did 1.5 for 8 oz. Just a bit of stevia and I have all I wanted in an almond cookie tea! I’m really glad I re-made this tea before rating it. The almond really comes up to the front with a burst of taste.
