I am drinking a lot of the same things over and again since we are still at the beach and away from my home stash. I made three steeps of this today and probably wouldn’t review it again except that it was a little different. I was using my tea press and for the first time I left the second steep in it instead of pouring it into a pitcher. I had wondered if lowering the screen really stopped it from steeping or if somehow it could get horribly bitter. The good news is that it did not get horribly bitter. It did, however, change. The second steep smelled so fruity, and the taste was buttery and fruity both. The third steep, done the same way, was fruity and the buttery flavor has diminished a bit more. Wow, still a delicious tea, but changing the steeping parameters made a very different experience.
I was AWOL for a day. This is what I assume knocked out Internet so I couldn’t get on steepster. Other than losing Internet, the little island didn’t seem to suffer any harm from this lovely storm. We love thunderstorms at the beach!
