I don’t know why this tastes so different than my previous few cups that I based the earlier note on. This time it was more: more bitter, more vegetal, more flavor. I liked this cup of tea much more. Hotter water? I think it was the same. Longer steep time? I’m pretty sure not. Different altitude? Both cities I made this tea in were at about 5000 feet. Must have been in a better mood this time?
