I got a chance to revisit this with purified water and a higher leaf to water ratio with a shorter steep time. Yay!
It was definitely sweeter. I got more of the woodiness and less of the fruit, but the flavors were consistent through the entire taste, whereas before I was mostly getting an aftertaste. I thought I tasted some citrus as well, but more like the aftertaste of a lime than the lime itself. Then again, I’ve been thinking everything tastes like citrus recently.
Definitely a yummy tea! Mild and smooth and lovely in the afternoon.
