I bought this tea because I saw 100g for the ridiculously cheap price of $2 and went YES PLEASE. As it turns out, it was quite a good purchase. It’s really not a bad brew at all, and so I consider it a good investment of a toonie. ;)

I certainly like this tea a lot better than the last cup of straight back I had. It has a nice, robust flavour, still with a bit of a flowery note, but balanced out by a deeper taste as well. Admittedly I got sidetracked while making it, meaning that it steeped longer than I intended by a few minutes for the first steep, but wasn’t too oversteeped tasting despite that. Also, it holds up well with a bit of milk, as I prefer, and even is agreeable with my habit of microwaving cooled down tea well after the fact.

Yes, a decent cup indeed, especially for the price!
