25 Tasting Notes
Perhaps I’m doing something wrong here. This is the second time I’ve tried this particular flavor. The first, I allowed the bag to steep for 4 1/2 minutes as directed (I felt 6 min was a bit too long) and it was quite bitter with only the slightest hint of mint. Tasted more like a cough drop than anything else. 2nd time around, just a few moments ago, I steeped for 2 minutes and, sadly, had the same result. Won’t be trying this one again anytime soon.
Backlogging a bit, I’ve had 2-3 cups in the past week. I cannot get enough of this tea! This is certainly not a sickeningly-sweet orange tea, which pleases me immensely.
Decided to try again, this time with four tea bags in the cup. It is DELICIOUS. It’s a bit disheartening that I have to add three extra bags to the cup to suit my desired taste, but.. to each their own, I suppose.
Lots of backlogging tonight. I drank this a few nights ago, wasn’t the first time. And still, this tea is just far too weak for my liking. You need at least two bags for more than just a hint of flavor, but letting it steep any longer than 4 minutes gives you a dreadfully bitter taste.
