I have always disliked this tea when brewed hot. It seems no matter how short the steep time, it always comes out bitter and tannic. This time, I tried a cold steep. I steeped it in the fridge for 23 hours, and it came out very pleasant. There was a very slight tannic aftertaste at the bottom of the glass, but overall no bitterness in the cup. I won’t be buying this tea again, but I think I can be happy using up the rest this way, especially come summer.
