When I steep this, the color is a lot more muted than in pictures, but it’s probably because I’m not putting enough leaf in. Just trying to stretch my tea! Anyway the color changing is fun, but I don’t add lemon because I don’t want my tea tasting like lemons. Drinking it plain, it tastes kind of boring. It’s a strange flavor that I can’t really compare to anything. Not bad, just kind of medium. I’ll definitely finish my two ounces, but this tea isn’t exciting enough to order again.
