Oh my goodness. This smelled lovely, so I put some in a swap package that I’m mailing out shortly, and now feel badly that I did.
It tastes horrible. Like, bitter angry tart horrible. I erred on the side of the bag instructions (3-5 min, boiling) when I thought I should leave this at just below boiling and 3 minutes… and maybe I should have. There’s an ugly chemical-y taste coming from the caocao chunks, and that’s all I can taste.
Trying to save this cup, I added Truvia. I’ll have to wait a bit since the horrible taste is stuck in there now… however it did smooth things out considerably. Going to let this sit and see if it improves after cooling and brushing my teeth and tongue. >.
