Update: this tea just got even better.
I prepared it more “properly” this time. I used only 1 cup of water, rather than stretching the capacities of teabag with nearly 2 cups as I usually do. I steeped it for only 5 minutes, as is recommended. And, reluctantly, I did something that I almost never do—namely, added two tablespoons of unsweetened hemp milk to the tea.
Wow—even better! The milk really did eliminate the “sequential flavor” phenomenon. I’m sure any sort of milk (dairy or non-) would work just as well. Everything was much more blended and balanced…! Delicious _.
