i haven’t even tasted this tea yet and i can tell from the reviews that i’ve oversteeped it…

aaaaand i did oversteep it. but i love the smell very much. and i’ll try again soon enough.

actually i just did a weird thing. i put maybe 1/3 a pack of splenda in my cup. i have spelnda in my desk but it was put there under a moment of insanity. i was not quite myself when it happened and i am NOT a splenda/stevia user. just to be clear of where this is coming from. but because of the over steep i figured i had nothing to lose so i added the tad of splenda and now the tea has no bitterness at all, and it’s not even really sweet! but it is still dry and the smell is still wonderful.
not that i’m gonna start using the splenda or anything, but i figured i’d get creative cuz it was already kinda not a good cup. and my experiment paid off :) cup of tea resuscitated!
good way to end the rainy blah work day that’s for sure.

I’m so excited to try this one! My store hasn’t had it when I’ve gone in. I keep checking though :)

Yeah, adding sugar to a bitter/astringent cup often can help. Hence milk & sugar with strong black teas :) Not my preference to have to add things though!

Courtney – I thought on the DT Fbook page I saw that this tea was no longer being restocked as it’s seasonal, so you may want to look into getting some elsewhere if possible if you really want to try it. I’d offer to send some but only bought a sample myself :(
