looking at the overall rating for this tea compared to how i rank it i will seem very much a killjoy.
i do not like this tea. the individual ingredients are fine, i like them all. however, although no essence of rum was added, it’s a flavour that i detect quite strongly. even mixing it with another tea (i’ve tried several) doesn’t dilute the rum flavour for me. in fact. instead of diluting the taste of rum, all it did was ruin the taste of the normally excellent teas i tried to combine it with.
hot, cold, varying the steeping time and temperature— nothing improved this tea for me.
the fact that i dislike rum as much as i do did not help i am sure.
