Second try, not any better than the first, although for different reasons.

I didn’t add any extra sweetener to the tea this time. It smelled nice both dry and after steeping. Tasting though, was a different matter entirely. I can taste the apple, I can barely taste the vanilla, I can definitely taste the hibiscus and it tastes more sour than tart to me and overwhelmingly I can taste the stevia and it tastes very bad. I couldn’t even finish my cup, I had to go pour it out.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
