The first time I made this I followed “Takeya’s” instructions, it turned out badly. So the second time I made it, I followed “Teavana’s” instructions and only steeped the leaves 1 min with 170 degree h2o, it turned out great. So refreshing and light. Has a vegetal or ( I hate to say this it sounds bad) grassy taste, like green tea should. I infused it with a 1 1/2 cups of cut up honey dew melon and left it, in the fridge over night and scooped out the fruit in the AM. SO GOOD, tasted like honey dew!

Just a young lady who really loves tea, and has no one in her life that loves tea as much she does. I just started my tea journey back in October of 2012, to try and cut Coke out of my life, I was drinking to much of it! Tea has really helped me, I have always liked it, but never knew there was such a thing as loose leaf and A HUGE community of tea lovers! I am crazy about tea and my friends think I am crazy, “what’s the big deal, it’s just tea” and other phrases like that. Just want to get to know others who share my “crazy” tea passion.
