Sipdown! I had a sample sachet of this I got free with my last Am. Tea Room order. Unfortunately I oversteeped it. Maybe I should have had this iced.
The base was super bitter (I had to dilute it 50%, and it was still bitter), but I wish I had soy milk and sweetner because this could be fixed. Maybe this tea isn’t made to be had plain, or maybe I ruined it by leaving the bag in a few minutes too long. I really like the spice combo (perfect blend of ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, and pepper). It is also vaguely nutty.
If the base was smooth, this would have been 90/100. Because the bitterness names it undrinkable and I don’t have any soy milk, it is more like a 30/100. I’m not going to rate it because I feel like I should have payed more attention to the brew time (it might be really good brewed correctly), but I would never buy a tea so finicky for myself.
