The dry leaves were smelling so good ! Caramel and a hint of chocolate for sure it was so sweet…I bought it ! I met an angel…
Then it was just a demon !
I struggled with this tea all day long.
I had it this morning and steeped it 4 min but I found it strong and bitter but I drank it.
I took it with me at work because I thought I did something wrong.
Second cup at work, I have been busy and I forgot it, it steeped for 6 minutes probably : it was just undrinkable to me : bitter incredibly bitter, I just dropped the beverage.
I made a second steep and for 3 minutes and a half this time, it was nice.
I made a third steep and it was nice as well.
The tea base is an assam and it is too strong for me I think. It hides me the fantastic flavors this tea has from the second steep.
It means I should find someone to drink all my first steep cups :)
I’ll try this with milk and sugar as well, may be good even on first steep.
