My new job doesn’t offer free coffee and tea like my last one.This has been good in two ways: 1) I’m no longer anxiety-riddled to a non-functional state by coffee and 2) I’m bringing in lots of tea to drink up. I’m loving fillable tea bags because then I can package up a week’s worth of tea for work all at once and prepare it with no mess. Win win win.
Because this one has been hanging around forever, I packed up the rest of it as a work tea. Shamelessly gunning for a sipdown. It’s way more tea than I expected (and I gave so much away!) and it’s … well, let’s just say I’ve got a bad habit of oversteeping my work teas and this one does not go gently into the night.
When I oversteep, it tastes like old lady perfume. Literally, like drinking a bottle of perfume. The floral from the rose is gross and overwhelming. Steeped for two minutes (and when there’s fewer chunks of flower in the tea), it’s smooth and has a tolerable background of rose.
I know I liked this one originally, but I’m not really enjoying it. I don’t think floral is for me and I can’t wait to be done with this one. Dropping my rating accordingly. :-/
