So I had this again this morning. Still having problems getting that chocolate taste I keep smelling. I only brewed it for four minutes this time, and for some reason the tea taste was even more astringent. I think it was because I kind of rooted around in the bag with my teaspoon to make sure I got a balanced spoonful.

Once I added a bit of milk, the astringency was gone and that coffee flavor showed up. It’s not a bad flavor, and I kind of like it, even if I don’t like coffee all that much. The mint flavor comes through perfectly, and there is already a natural sweetness there, or I would be reaching for the honey (cause I find coffee to be more bitter than tea).

The website doesn’t have any instructions on brewing, so if anyone out there would like to relate their favorite brewing instructions for this tea, I would be grateful. I looked over some of the other entries for this, but aside from brewing at 4 minutes for a few, I couldn’t find much information.

Maybe I’m not looking carefully enough.
