Dear Steepster Friends,
I know you salivated over this tea as soon as I posted it. I get it. I did as soon as I received it, too.
The idea of candy bar tea? Yaasss. I’m in. Like Flynn.
Sadly, I didn’t get what I think I should have out of this tea. Why? The super cute tea spoon that it came with didn’t allow for enough room to portion it out (leaves = big = good). Plus, I had no idea as to how much – there’s nothing listed on the bag other than the name, the really cute logo (a tea stain!), and a note about not drinking things you’re allergic to.
Okay. But how much leaf?
I guessed, dear friends. And I failed miserably.
I put in (about) a tablespoon of tea and caramel bits, into a 12 oz cup of 200F hot water.
Yea, it was just flavored, weak tea. Nothing I can even grab to say, “yes, that’s what it tasted like”.
Just weak, thin, tea.
I’ll try again tomorrow.
