Steeping for three minutes got me a dark brownish liquid with a greenish hue that made me hesitant to try this blend. Over-steeped tea and I don’t get along – in fact, I chronically under-steep most teas out of fear of drinking bitter tea. But this tea wasn’t over-steeped, it just looked a bit darker than I was used to. The flavor is slightly woodsy, but no where near as woodsy as a roobois. It has some depth to it, not as strong as a black tea but definitely not as light as a white, maybe more on the level of a green tea without the green tea taste. After it cooled a bit I started to get a hint of the lemon. Second steeping proved to be identical to the first, which was nice. Overall an interesting flavor, but not something I’d reach for on a regular basis.

Thanks to LiberTea for passing on a sample!

I grew up drinking masala chai and fell into the tea world a couple years ago. Black teas are probably my favorite, with Darjeeling and Earl Grey on the top of the list. Recently green teas and oolongs have been growing on me, and anything with mint or a citrus flavor is good in my book.
