2nd steep today, added 2% milk and a teaspoon of sugar.

Buttery taste turned into more of a cream taste, like that better. Steeped way too long, forgot about it, oops.

That extra time added more bitterness to the aftertaste

Snow storm outside so I thought I’d go through some of the tea I have stocked up for just such a situation.

Only started with this tea as I already had boiling water. Odd that directions wanted that, toasted flavor is almost all I taste, added a bit of honey to cut through, all I smell is grass/hay.

Not bad, just not my favorite.

Always good when you want a bit of tea with your smoke and milk.

This arrived at work the same time as my Kickstarter KLiP, so of course I had to steep a batch right away.

Only problem is that I am sick and my taste buds are completely shot.

Will try again later.

First steep. Tobacco is definitely a massive flavor, look forward to it mellowing with additional steepings. Added more sugar than I normally would after first few sips, made it taste better.

Always love when I follow instructions included with a tea and then when I log in to Steepster I see additional instructions (namely to rinse the tea) have not done that.

Not bad, buttery taste.

Found another sample. Seriously a lot of butter flavor. Same steep time and temp. Will add some cream and sugar to next steep.
