Well I steeped this cup for less time than before and I’m still getting an unpleasent bitterness initially when I take a sip. I am getting a more distinct yam/sweet potato flavour on the tail end of things, which actually isn’t too bad – although I was hoping for more toasted marshmallow, like the description on the Adagio website suggested. ;)
As the liquid cools, I can taste a bit more of the ‘sweet’; it’s not a very sugary sort of sweet, more like a muted, starchy sort of sweetness.
Meh, I’m still not terribly impressed with this tea.
