We are out of real half & half at work, so I had to use coffee-mate again. Ew. I swear that stuff brings out any bitterness whatsoever in your tea that might be lurking. I was surprised this morning when my dependable Keemun tasted bitter, and I felt I definitely had not oversteeped it. That means the only culprit is the creamer.
Maybe I should start bringing in my own half & half. Because co-workers totally don’t find brewing loose tea weird enough… /sarcasm
