Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea
Made this while rushing around in the morning getting ready to go to work.
I didn’t smell spice or ginger, more fruity.
I started the second steep before tasting the first.
I ended up chugging it as it was so bitter and astringent.
It could have used less time (mild) and perhaps cream and sugar to be palatable.
Post-Steep Additives: none
Resteep: Zarafina Black-loose-strong
