Day 74 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. Catching up on the backlog once again!

Dumped the advent tin into my two-cupper.

So I totally mistook this as an herbal tea when I first brewed it. Which would be why I dumped it all in, and brewed it for quite as long as I did. Which, as it turns out, isn’t far from how it should be steeped. It was quite nice for the first cup, but the second cup was all bitter and… well, I figured out what I did wrong. The resteep agreed with the first cup on the true, nicer flavour of the tea.

It has a nice citrus tang to it from the orange. I could taste the tea in it, which I think confused me because I wasn’t quite sure what it was, having convinced myself it was, in fact, an herbal tea.

I’d like to try this again now that I understand the nature of the tea. I’ll have to get some and try it out again sometime soon.

I will say, though, having been subject to a church potluck and then Sunday dinner, this tea did its job as a good digestive aid! Probably worth it for this benifit alone!
