Oh Steepster, are you having hiccups again? Boo. Thus my reasoning behind why I’m struggling to say who exactly sent this tea via the 12 Days of Christmas swap – however someone did. Even drew The Doctor with a bowtie on the baggie! So awesome.
The person who shared this also shared that this tea gets bitter quick, and boy were they right. I steeped at a lower temperature and for less time, and yet I still get astringency right off the bat. As per usual, some sweetener helps to tone it down a bit, however my mouth is still dry and puckering. I get a touch of caramel in there, definitely the cream from the coconut, and little else other than – dry base. :(
