drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA

I think I made a mistake when I steeped this one as instructed. There is a definite bitterness underlying each sip. I liked the dry scent of the tea, even if it was a bit artificial-apple smelling, and it smells like apple once steeped, too. I can’t get over the bitterness, though. I should have read the reviews first and steeped it at a cooler temp for less time.

I did a 2nd infusion at 80C for 2.5 min. It has very little scent, but at least I can drink it (not much flavour, though).

I’ll try this again, but I’m glad I only purchased a small amount of this one.

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
