This tea was thoroughly delicious. My first steep tasted of sweet sumptuous banana bread. My second steeping was less successful, but I’m fairly sure I’m to blame – I left the leaves in for 7 minutes and the result was a tasty cup that somehow affected my tongue so as to make everything seem to lose its flavor (as tends to happen when I eat too much candy). I’m fairly sure that’s due to the oversteeping of the stevia leaf in particular, and I’m not holding it against this tea since the first cup was exceptional.
