Attempted a mug of this last night, but abandoned it. At my best friend’s (where I am), there hasn’t been much rain, so the water tastes kind of strange. Thinking that the water ruined the tea, I waited until today to brew another cup (with bottled water this time), to really get a true taste of it.
Yeah, it wasn’t the funky-tasting water.
It doesn’t really taste like caramel. It doesn’t really taste like anything except “burnt” and “kinda gross”.
I’ll try it at 3 minutes next time. Maybe that’ll help?
