Got a box of this from a friend as starbucks was clearing out their old stash to make way for the new one. I am still trying to wrap my pallet around this one. I can’t seem to get it to taste like anything other than a generic black tea. I think I may have over steeped this because it was on the slightly bitter side even after I sweetened it with my usual rock sugar. I am going to keep trying and adding milk and lessening the steep time.
I think I got this one figured out finally. I lowered the steeping time by about 1 minute. This time it did not have the harsh, bitter, in your face taste it had the first time I tried it. I used the same amount of sugar, but did add a splash of whole milk (thanks to my 2 year old daughter) and this now is one of my go to teas when I don’t have the space or time for loose leaf tea.
