So I finally gave this one another try today and actually followed the package suggestion of what I consider a pretty long steep. I went with 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I don’t know how long I steeped it the first time, but probably more like 3 minutes.
Anyway, it was much better. The flavours made a lot more sense. Still not at the top of my list, but it didn’t taste all wrong like the first try. I think I’m just not into the citrus + caramel combination, which comes through loud and clear here.
