Art of Tea Sample 4/24

Total user error/label reading FAIL on this tea. I thought it was a rooibos so I steeped for 7+ minutes as the timer went off and I didn’t go remove the tea promptly. It was probably steeping for over 10 minutes.

Wow did that make one cup of awakening tea. Glad to know that’s not how the tea should taste! It sure would have been a great wake me up cuppa. I will rate when I brew this correctly!

You will not believe this: but I did the exact same thing the first time I had this tea!! Seriously, thought it was a rooibos, brewed it for 10 minutes, and then drank it at 8pm. Could not for the life of me figure out why I couldn’t sleep, and then got online and…oh, it’s a black tea.

For the sake of future tasters, I’ve updated the tea information ;)

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
