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.
