3 finals down, one more to go! To fuel my brain, I decided to steep the sample of this tea I got from my last order.
I added a bit of sugar and half and half to the brew and I don’t know… the flavors in this tea don’t really impress me at all. The banana and chocolate flavors are underwhelming, and honestly the idea of “drinking” banana kind of puts me off. I steeped this tea for awhile and still am getting a pretty watered down flavor. And while taking a sip of the tea, I notice an oily feeling on my lips. Sure enough, there’s a layer of it floating on top of my steeped tea. No coconut listed in the ingredients though, so I’m not even sure why there would be an oiliness to begin with.
Anyway, the idea was good but execution is not so much. In fact I may just throw the rest of the brewed tea out and pick a different flavor.

Bio

I am currently in my last year as an undergrad at the University of Texas at Dallas. I’m studying Speech Pathology & Audiology and Child Development, so tea is my go-to when it comes to a study buddy!

My favorite types are herbals, greens, and black teas. Mate and rooibos aren’t all that impressive to me, but occasionally there are exceptions.
My palate in general craves fresh, light and flavorful teas and I find citrus or floral notes to be nice touches for the most part.

I’m brand new to Steepster and I’m looking for anyone looking to do tea trades (although I’m not entirely sure how this process works).

Keep calm and brew on!
