Okay, I realized I had some of this stuff at home from my Christmas Collection gift set, so I decided to give it another try.
I think I found the secret to make this tea work for me – milk! I found the flavour was much more balanced this time around, and made for a much more enjoyable tea experience. I re-adjusted my rating for this: it takes a bit more effort but it definitely pays off when it comes to flavour, lots of sweet chocolatey-orange taste.
I’m about to go for a resteep and I’ll see how it holds up. I still have about three or four cup fulls worth of tea leaves left, then I’ll decide whether to add this to my collection or not. (:
