I’m impressed by this tea, but not in a good way. Any tea that can manage to get bitter in two minutes impresses me.

In times of stress, we all fall back on those bad habits we try not to indulge in. It’s been an incredibly stressful week, and my bad habits have been junk food and sodas. I was looking forward to curling up with a good tea to bust the stress and feel better about what I was putting in my body…I should not have reached for this tea.

The front of the sip is stomach-wrenchingly bitter, though the flavor does come through after that. Still, not enough for me to want to finish the cup.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
