The Early July TeaLog Catchup !
This is the last of this sample from the 52teas’ Valentine’s Day chocolate tea sampler. I had more than one cup’s worth, leaving about a scant half teaspoon left. So I thought what the hell and threw it all in.
It came out strong on the black tea part of it, but in a drying not astringent way. Odd, but I really liked it and it was so good. I’ve been trying the steeping times lower for 52teas black teas so that might have help. As the cup cooled some, the taste got better and better. Second steep was lovely in strength too and also more enjoyable as it cooled.
2nd steep: approx 15 mins.
