How to brew this tea?

What's important to say about blends with so many ingredients, and especially those with both green and black tea, that you will never quite know what the colour will be like. The colour of brewed tea will depend on which ingredients you scoop out. This blend contains so many different colours, and 3 ingredients lead – green tea, black tea and hibiscus. Black and green tea usually blend amazingly well, but don't expect green tea to be predominant, even though it contains more green than black tea.

Brew Watermelon Sugar one using 1 teaspoon of tea leaves at 80 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes. It has a summery scent, quite similar to the scent of dry leaves but less intense. There are more strawberry and less sugar notes. Flavour is quite light, with lingering rose and a deeper but light black tea body. This tea is light. It's not sweet, but it's not bitter either.
