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.

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
