Every time I had this tea in-store I found it bitter, but when I made it at home, it was PERFECT. Instead of being bitter with a flowery aftertaste, it was just flowery and sweet. I absolutely love this one when it’s brewed right (or wrong…?) but when it goes wrong, it’s kind of painful. Glad I took a chance on the aftertaste I loved, since now I’m enjoying it with every sip in the privacy of my home!
