I’ve been continually playing with this tea in an attempt to either persuade myself that I don’t need to order more or to convince myself that it is worth the money. I tried for a 3rd infusion today…on a black tea. I let the tea steep for around 10 minutes which resulted in a very light tea and cocoa flavor. It definitely had some flavor and is impressive that it tasted okay and not bitter at the 3rd infusion, but it isn’t an infusion that I will probably do again.
Its strange, I had this tea yesterday and I swear it was like the best thing I had ever tasted. I had it again today and it was good, but not amazing. Maybe it is because I started yesterday with a hardier black tea before moving to Dawn. I think that perhaps it is hard for me to taste all the nuances of this tea without being properly caffeinated and awake. I will be having this again tomorrow (I’ve limited myself to one infusion series per day of this tea) and will try it after my breakfast tea to see if the amazing feeling from drinking this returns. If it does, I promise that I will have to keep this tea around.
