Brewed this one up according to company directions – 3min at 175F – and I’m definitely not impressed. It came out seriously bitter on the aftertaste, bad enough that I’m going to toss it down the drain and start anew.

Second steep was 2min at 175F and the results were slightly better. The aftertaste of bitterness is lessened, but I happen to find the fruit flavours less than appealing…I pick up a lot of pineapple and papaya (or possibly mango) that doesn’t merge well with the green base.

I think if I were going to make it again I would keep the steep down to 1min at 175F to hopefully kill the bitterness that happens as it cools…but my honest opinion is that it’s not worth another round of steeping to hopefully get it up to mediocre.

175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Overstressed aspiring model…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things. (with the exception of jasmine…that icky stuff tastes like soap)

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
