Three pouches later and I can now say that it’s a sip down. Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish and I really aren’t ending on a good note for a number of reasons:
1. I had almost three cups worth of dry leaf left but wanted to get it over with, so I made a Nordic mug’s (two cups worth). Despite brewing it at cooler temperature and not too long, this last bit has turned out bitter.
2a. These reblends in general have gone quite downhill. It is not at all how it used to be. No matter how I brew it, I can’t get those creamy and pastry notes any longer.
2b. Didn’t work as a cold brew either. All base and almost no blueberry. But it may be a reblend issue.
2c. The resteep isn’t what it used to be. The second steep used to be heavenly. The base would mellow out and the creamy and pastry notes would pop. No additives necessary. Again, most likely a reblend issue.
Unfortunately, this tea stopped being a 100 about 1.5 pouches ago, but I’ll leave it as is. I truly believe my tastes didn’t change when it comes to this tea. Oh well, onto better things!
