Well, it’s 85F outside, but I’m still drinking hot tea. Probably not the best decision, but iced tea has never been my thing.
The first time I steeped this tea, I used too much leaf and it came out waaaaay too bitter and astringent. I forced myself to drink it, but I didn’t enjoy it and shied away from it for a couple weeks. This time was much better.
The first steep has a caramel/cocoa taste to it, although it’s not sweet by any means. I kinda think of it as a stronger version of thepuriTea’s Golden Yuunan. I think this would be a really good tea to drink first thing in the morning when it’s a little cooler outside.
The second steep is lighter than the first, more cocoa than caramel. I’m not sure how to describe the aftertaste, but it makes me want to go eat meat. Savory, I guess?
