Wow, I drank way too much caffeine today. I have the jitters. Hope I don’t have trouble getting to sleep tonight…
I got a 5 gram sample of this tea in with my most recent order from DAVIDs TEA. This isn’t something I would normally purchase since it’s black tea (black tea can be harsh on my stomach so I therefore rarely drink it) but since it wasn’t a pure black tea I decided to give it a try.
I steeped the entire 5 gram sample in 1 mug of 200 degree F water for 3.5 minutes then put the mug in the freezer for an hour to cool it off so that way the tea would be “iced”. The tea tasted like mangoes (with only a slightly artificial taste to it) with the base of black tea (glad I only steeped it for 3.5 min because it was on the cusp of going bitter). Overall a nice summer tea to try out iced. However, as mentioned, due to the fact that it is black tea (and the fact that I prefer my iced teas to be herbal) I will not be purchasing this one. I’m glad I tried it out though!
