Once you smell it, it’s just amazing. Before or after work making a pot of this tea is one of my favourite things to do, as once the tea begins to steep it slowly creeps through the kitchen. But personally I wouldn't suggest following the instructions. I don’t like buying David’s Tea because I feel like I have to conform to the 98 degrees celsius brewing temperature and two teaspoons per cup, and whatever other instructions on the package. This tea is so much better when brewed strongly, which is what I do when I make a pack for a pot to on. The stronger this tea is, the better. As long as you don’t burn it. The aftertaste is pleasant, sort of tart, but that's probably because I use so much.
