Many, many thanks to SimplyJenW for sending me this tea to try!!!!!
I haven’t had much experience with decaf teas besides my Extremely Beloved Vanilla Comoro, and one less than stellar go with Decaf Hot Cinnamon Spice, so I was really excited to try this. I used my usual black flavored tea brewing method, which I think was a bit of a mistake – I got a little bitterness/astringency/funny decaf flavor. I get this extremely dry tongue feeling and a slight chemical aftertaste? Does anyone else get that w decafs?
Anyhoo – it reminded me a lot of H&S chocolate tea- if I could just lessen that funny decaf thing I have going on!! She also sent me a chocolate mint decaf, and I’ll bet you anything the mint will mitigate that funny unpleasantness, as will a shorter brew time/more tea trick that I do w VC (4 min, heaping teaspoon tea).
Here’s to experiments! clink tea cups
P.S. My husband drained his cup alarmingly fast and doesn’t taste chemicals – maybe it’s my very active imagination?
