Everyone seems to have had labeling/following the instructions for this tea, causing a mug of bitterness instead of calming green tea.
I just went with what my kettle said and steep it for only 3 minutes at most, and it came out fine. The green tea just tasted like green tea. I regret not reading to try it iced now that I finished it because apparently that brought out the other flavors.
Books recommended for this tea are: The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, Dark Places by Gillian Flynn.
Why I chose those books is because the plots come from a bitter place in life, but at the same time, if you’re lucky, or through the hard detective work of finding out the best combo on how to brew/steep this tea, you can find yourself in a good standing.
