I realized this morning why this always comes out a bit bitter for me – I was too busy following the instructions to actually look in the tea. There’s green tea in here! I was inhaling the scent as usual, when I finally opened my eyes. The base is a mix of black and green tea, so boiling isn’t really the way to go. For shame, David’s Tea!
Anyway, I used water that was NOT boiling and none of that burnt/bitter flavour appeared. Lesson learned – Look at your tea!!
