well, first steeping, following directions exactly was non-interesting. i may have been biased by the fact that the dry tea smells awful, super fake flavoring like. second steeping, i forgot about it, and it sat for about 10 minutes, and y’know what? it’s a little better. added a little honey, and it is even better! however, that doesn’t mean it is a hit or anything. i think i was expecting something more like vietnamese artichoke tea, made with actual artichoke plant parts (not “natural artichoke flavor”), which isn’t caffeine-y, so doesn’t actually have tea in it (i think). if they’d added actual artichoke bits to green tea, might have been better, possibly.

Preparation

drank this again a couple of days ago, as have plenty of it, and you know what? was a lot better. i don’t think i did much different, but perhaps i was just feeling more tolerant then. still not my absolute favorite, but was better than NON interesting. it was A LITTLE BIT interesting this time. :)
