I swear this tea tastes different every time I drink it. This time I tasted notes of leather, spicy tobacco, smoke and minerals. It wasn’t unpleasant…just different from the last time I made a cup. Admittedly, I steeped the heck out it. Probably a good 8 minutes at least. It was dark! I’m sure it would have been better if I could have focused a little more on tea and less on being pulled 10 different directions at the office. I used boiling water again, since it had such nice results last time. I’m off to make another cup of this ever evolving tea. But this time I’ll use my tea timer!
