This is an interesting herbal I received today in my order from Teavivre. The first ingredient is missing from the list because Lotus Leaf is not in the catalog and couldn’t be added to the tea description. I find that this tea is fairly good with sugar and it is supposed to be healthy. Mostly I am drinking it tonight because it is caffeine free. It has kind of what I would describe as a somewhat sweet and an earthy flavor. By this I do not mean the earthy of ripe puerh but the earthy of chamomile. As it cools a bit I begin to taste the orange peel a little. Strangely I am really beginning to enjoy this tea.
I did my best to follow the brewing directions on the Teavivre site. I brewed 7.1g of leaf in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with boiling water for 5 min. It says you can resteep it up to two times but I doubt I want that much tea tonight.
