- Flavor has changed Review by AmbrosiaNut
- I loved this tea when I first bought it many years ago. I drank it both hot and cold. At some point, it was discontinued, and so I was extremely excited to find it for sale again! Unfortunately, the flavor has changed significantly. It's still good, but I personally do not care for it nearly as much as I did the previous mix. So if you've never had it before - give it a try! If you're looking for the same flavor you were able to purchase years ago, expect this to be different... (Posted on 6/25/16)
- Great taste, odd smell Review by Christina
This tea has a very nice green tea and floral flavor which I enjoy immensly, but I find myself having to hold my breath to get to it as the plum flavoring gives off a very strong odor of over-ripe fruit.
Zhena generally makes great products, and I'm pretty sure this is a personal quibble, but it feels like something others would like to know when shopping. (Posted on 6/5/15)

Tea preparation is a matter of personal choice and preference, but here some guidelines to get you started.
- Black Tea can be brewed in truly boiling water, usually steeped for 3-5 minutes.
- Green Tea should be brewed with water between 160-175F and only steeped for 2-4 minutes.
- White Tea can be brewed a bit warmer, at 175F and steeped for 3-5 minutes.
- Oolong Tea is best brewed at 190F, but steeped longer than black tea for 5-8 minutes.
- Rooibos Tea can also be brewed in fully boiling water and steeped indefinitely.
- Herbal Infusions come in so many varieties that there can be no specific guidelines, but you can generally start with boiling water and a 5 minute steep.
