Too easily bitter...
 September 7, 2013
"I have bought and will continue to buy some Starwest teas but not this one. I have worked hard at trying to brew a decent pot of this decaf and it rarely happens. I let my water sit for 2 minutes after boiling so it's not too hot, I steep for three minutes, 2 minutes, 5 minutes and it doesn't matter, I get a very mediocre green tea. At best, it's grassy without much body and keeps a bitter background. At worst it's bitter, tastes like cooked straw, and tannic without the lovely tea flavors that help the more tannic tastes. Save your $ for regular tea."
