Feeling ill and decided to try the plain version of this tea. (I’m guessing at this since it seems my version varied from some of the other reviews.) Surprisingly subtle yet requires no sweeteners to make it drinkable. I accidentally boiled the water and forgot to take my tea holder out and this tea was extremely forgiving as there was no bitter flavor for over brewing.
The tea leaves were wet, which surprised me, thinking, initially, the leaves were compromised.
This tea will become part of my rotation of teas, especially when my stomach is upset. There is a “soft” texture while drinking, for lack of my ability to think of better terminology at this point in time. Something I figured I should mention for anyone that is sensitive to textures.
First brew was boiling with 10+ minutes steeping. Second brew was 190 degrees with 5 minutes steeping. I preferred the 190 degrees but a longer steep and will do so for any future brews.
