Very subtle, too subtle. Tastes like a bland rooibos.
Thinking back to the low quality appearance of the other Pangea teas and wondering if it’s the tea or me.
Resteeping for 6 min this time. May try using more tea next time.

Extra time did nothing. Doubling the amount of tea did nothing. Not even enough flavor to use as a base for blending. Out it goes…

Bio

I’ve recently discovered the world of loose leaf teas and, more importantly, careful brewing. Wow, what a difference! I liked tea when I was steeping bags of it in whatever came out of the red spigot on the office water cooler but I love, love, love it now.

I heat water in my beloved Cuisinart PerfectTemp kettle and brew right in the cup. Never any sweeteners and very, very rarely any milk.

When not drinking tea, I’ve been known to teach gemology, knit, jump onto airplanes and trains at a moment’s notice, watch sumo, make jewelry, read the first halves of many books, dine finely, sing in the car, design webpages, belly dance, learn about stuff, and try anything I haven’t tried before. If you’re a Myers-Briggs buff, you probably know by now that I’m an ENTP.
