Steepster Traveling Teabox tea
MilitiaJim did not like it at all.
Neither of us got the hazelnut, maybe that was what I was mistaking for tobacco?
Either way a delicious chocolate tea.
Either way after everyone rating this so highly on Steepster I was expecting too much. This is a great tea and I will probably purchase it occasionally but to fall in love perhaps I need to tweak my preparation methods?
Post-Steep Additives: none
Resteep: 6 minutes, lighter color and taste but still good
