I brewed this using 195°F water for 2 minutes and then put the tea in the refrigerator to cool overnight. I am drinking a chilled thermos of this at work today.
I had high hopes for this tea. The description is marvelous and the tea is really beautiful with all the little sprinkles and festive balls. The taste is yummy and very marshmallow. The aftertaste, however, is not. It builds to something not very pleasant, maybe akin to the aftertaste of some artificial sweeteners. I’m not really sure how to describe it.
I played around with the brewing parameters. If I use more leaf and longer steep time, then the sugary marshmallow flavor becomes fantastic, but the aftertaste scales as well. So, I found that 2 minutes provides a light marshmallow flavor and light aftertaste and is the most enjoyable way to consume this tea.
