I steeped this tea according to directions. I steeped it for 2 minutes at 190 degrees F in a porcelain teapot of 24 oz of water ad 4 tsp of green tea.The toastiness was very prevalent but was perfect. It did not overshadow the green tea but smoothed out the green tea where green tea tends to be a little bitter if not careful at times. I love the toasty aroma and how well the tea went down very smoothly. I paired this tea with a wild greens and kale salad topped with diced vegan chick strips and a poppyseed dressing. The tea and wild greens/kale salad paired well with the green tea bringing out a beautiful meal accompaniment. I made a 24 oz pot so I drank the remaining pot of tea after my salad was done. The tea holds well without a meal. The smoothness, toastiness, and slight vegetation of the green tea was perfect.
