Made a pot in the Breville this morning to see if this improved, since I hadn’t been actually temping the water before. It has, but not as much as I would have liked.
The bitter is gone for the most part. There are still no goji berries. None. Not even a hint of any kind of berry. Cocoa is more pronounced, but still tastes like you dropped unsweetened cocoa powder into some mediocre green tea. Smell is nice, but the tea just doesn’t live up to it.
