Strange taste…almost artificial. The cocoa tastes almost like leather…milk&honey don’t do much good either. And what are those oily spots that swim on top of my brew?Actually I start to feel kind of nauseous.
Oh God…and still a whole bag to go.
If it’s that bad, you are allowed to throw it away!! Or maybe find someone who likes it?
The “oily spots” are actually a very good thing! Those are the essential oils leaving the tea leaves. When you see those you know you’re getting the all the stuff that’s good for the rest of your body, not just your tongue.
If you check the ingredients,cinnamon oil, cardamom oil, and ginger oil are all in the list… and “Cofftea” is right for actual TEA products… it’s the sign for ceylon tea in particular that it was processed correctly and stored well; for this, it’s the cinnamon/cardamom/ginger OILs though… and even chocolate has fat in it—good chocolate will leave an oily residue, too, when melted in water.
