A lovely toasty tea. It does best with a long brew time, around 10 minutes or so, for the roasted flavors to develop, otherwise it has a light flavor that reminds me a bit of chlorine. When brewed strong, it has a wonderfully unique warm and toasted flavor. This will certainly stay a staple in my pantry, and as a bonus, it has no caffeine.
