I ordered the tin of this tea. The packaging is very nice; I believe the tin would be reusable and would look nice on a countertop or tea shelf. The tea definitely has a chocolatey-caramel-roasty-smooth quality which both my husband and I enjoyed. I always add sugar and cream to my husband's tea, and he asked me if it was marshmallow (as in the confection, not the herb.) Without sugar and cream, it still has a smooth almost sweetish quality. A 90 second - 2 min steep is all you need. This tea goes very bitter after 3-4 minutes. Oversleeping will make this undrinkable in my opinion. The one thing that is a little hard for me to get past is that there is a undeniable play doh aroma to this tea. Really strange smell - it's a little hard not to feel like I taste it. A nice brew, but not my favorite due to the smell.
