A Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

I was expecting more vanilla flavor, and less bitterness.

Post-Steep Additives: 1/2 tsp German rock sugar, bring out the vanilla, and of course makes it sweeter. still a bit bitter

Resteep: 2 minutes, 1 tsp German rock sugar, very sweet, vanilla, same dark coloring, and bitter black tea

kinda feeling ‘meh’ about it, if it were a cheaper bagged tea i would find it acceptable, but I have higher expectations for loose leaf teas.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
