Okay I just left this steeping for far longer than intended..and it actually made me like it a lot more. It still has that weird, artificial scent but it tastes way more chocolatey after that long steep. It was probably around 8 minutes before I remembered it was steeping. I was expecting it to have gotten bitter but it was all good!
Though the distraction…I was talking on the phone to my mom about tea (because I never shut up about tea) she didn’t believe me that tea could have a creamy taste without milk. Oh boy when she come back to visit is she going to be in for more tea than she wants.
It might require hiding half of what I have.
