I used freshly boiled water that sat around until cool/mildly warm. I put one heaping tea spoon in my cup and adding the water. I leave it steeping in my bottle for 15 minutes. Tea’s color is very mild brown coloring. Tea’s aroma is that of the clover herbs and sweetfern. There is a mild sweetness to the tea when I taste of it.
I think seeing the tea in my bottle with the buds and small pod like worms open up was more scary than anything else and once I remove the top from my tea bottle and scoop out the pods and floral, I found that I could enjoy sipping of the tea which was not bitter at all.
Overall tasting notes: tea is very mildly sweet and not at all bitter as depicted in write up. This may be due to the fact that I used boiling water left to cool slightly then just using room temperature water. I did steep it for 15 minutes, then longer for 20 minutes and each time the coloring was slightly brown…
Cup’s characteristic: a floral tea with the buds blossoming as the tea steeps
Liquor color: light brown
