Finishing up the last bit of this from Rachel. Have lowered the steeping temperature to hopefully improve this blend.
It did improve. The bitter citrus pith taste is nearly gone. But there’s no pomegranate and no tangerine flavor, either. Just a breakfast tea taste. I’ll be able to finish this pot, but won’t be visiting this one again.
Actually, I imagine this is what the “tea” from the beverage machine in Hitchhiker’s Guide tastes like. It’s more tea-like than actual tea.
