So this is my 2nd time trying this. I took the advice of NMTC and dropped the temp down to 170 and increased the steep time to 3 minutes (normally would never do this but sometimes you have to play with it a little).

Can vaguely smell the papaya, the whole tea smells “fruity”
Taste? Well I can taste more this time (assume due to longer steep) but it’s still REAL light on flavor for me. It certainly smells more like it should taste then it actually does. I’m going to move my rating up a little since it is a bit better but still not one I’ll be reordering.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 3 min, 0 sec

My preferred method for fruity greens is cold brewing, maybe that will make it pop a bit more?

I’ll most likely try that next. I’m mostly a hot tea drinker but if it makes it pop I’ll do cold :)
