I want this tea to die. The first time I made it I over-steeped it and used water that was much hotter than recommended, and it was absolutely nauseatingly bitter. Just disgusting. It tasted like poison. I made it a few more times, being careful about steeping time and temperature, and it still tasted gross to me. It’s likely that my first awful experience was primed every time I drank it, so the tea never had a fair shot. It was more palatable with sugar and half-and-half, but the taste was still too unpleasant for me. Sadly, I bought a bunch of this on sale (a full 8oz tin!). Steve was able to drink some of it but it mostly sat unloved on our shelf for over a year… at which point it started to look and smell funny, so we tossed it (finally!).

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
