I steep at 185° for 3 minutes. It's a cloudy, light pink liquor that's largely translucent. The flavour, kindly put, is subtle. The rosehips and hibiscus are noticeable, coupled with a vague floral flavour. It is slightly acidic and sour, which could be indicative of the schizandra berries, but it's not particularly on point. It's fruity, but not specifically lychee or plum or any flavour it's supposed to resemble.
I attempt a second steep, but it's basically inedible and ends up in my kitchen sink. I wouldn't call this tea a winner, but it's not bad enough to overcome the company's hard-won reputation. I'll probably pass it on to a friend, which is at least one step above going straight into the garbage.
