Well, this time I made sure the mug was rinsed multiple times and I removed the bags after about 5 minutes.
So no soap, but no particular flavor of anything else, either. Aside from an unidentifiable aftertaste I’m getting. Orange and mango ought to taste JUICY. Again, the aroma was pleasant, but not worth the trouble. Maybe I got a bad or stale box — others have seemed to enjoy this.
