Thanks to Rachel Sincere for a sample of this tea (and having an awesome name :-p).. I had heard so much hype about this tea and I just HAD to try it.
My first thought when sipping this was… Bitterness. I’m not sure WHY I’m getting bitterness because I used less than boiling water and only steeped it for 2 min. But for some reason that’s the most prominent thing. Maybe I shouldn’t have let this brew in a t-sac? I don’t know, I haven’t had problems with other t-sacs. I’m a little concerned it’s something on my end because no other reviewer mentioned bitterness
As the tea cools, the bitterness goes away and I do get the notes of mint and marshmallow. Maybe I’m better off cold-brewing this one? I don’t know.
I’ll have to rebrew this and see if it changes the next time. Maybe I’ll use more water. Unfortunately I only had 1 sample of this. :(
