When I first opened the canister and breathed in the fragrance, I thought the tea would be too sweet. The light, sweet, flowery aroma was strong. However, I brewed full pot, using just one 1/2 teaspoons and brewing for about 6 minutes and the tea was delicious: Fragrant but not sweet, light, and bright. And, when I re-heated a remaining cup next day to try, it too was lovely - just a bit darker. This is a perfect tea for an afternoon curled up with a good book.
