Sweet citrus flavors and very infusable Review by Theo
Very similar to it's aged counterpart, only this one has more pronounced citrus flavors. It can endure easily +10 steeps. It's very robust as the leaves don't every get bitter or overly vegetal. It's convenient to put some in a thermos and take it to class. Very smooth and soothing too. I prefer the aged version. (Posted on 11/17/2015)
