Steeped this bag once before to get acclimated to the taste.

And it seems that every tea from this brand that has a fruity flavor to it is, indeed, artificial. Sigh

I’m not really sure what to say on this one – on the first steeping, a lot more of the green tea came through, making the artificial taste a lot more forgiving on the tongue. The second steeping, however, betrays its artifice, as the green tea has really left the building. This is probably due to two facts – the anemic size of the tea bag itself, and the size of the “travel mug” that I’ve been steeping it in, which is a bit large and pretty filled with water. At any rate, this tea’s resonating flavor on the second steeping is this artificial blueberry taste that was light and forgiving on the first steep through. I’d say this one is good for a single steep – a light green tea with a tickle of false blueberry – but toss the bag out on the first steeping.

Jeez, Boston really needs to get its fruit-flavors in line – probably done best by incorporating actual fruit into the bags.
