This is a sample from Anny Oxidant & the Tea Bullie, thanks for sharing! Miss Anny was rather nice and sent me a surprise package of tea. Very considerate lady.
So this tea is not my cuppa. I like that word cuppa. I’ve been waiting to use it for a while now. The tea has a strong seaweed flavor which is some thing I don’t enjoy right now. At first I thought a vague citrus was teasing me but I do get tangerine in the aftertaste. The biggest problem is this was really bitter.
I don’t feel I used too much leaf. In fact, it looked like less leaf than I generally pile into my Ingenuitea. I brewed at a lower temperature and for less time than the instructions called for so perhaps that contributed to the bitterness. In any case, this isn’t a tea I would keep around, but I’m glad I got to try it. Thanks again Anny Oxidant & the Tea Bullie.
