Inkling Advent Day 11. I usually steep my black teas at 200 for 3 minutes maximum, but the steeping parameters on the bag encourage a longer steep time (plus higher temperature, which I didn’t follow). I definitely wish I’d gone with my usual steep time as well, because I feel like more negative, approaching bitter flavors are appearing in this cup. I taste a bit of blueberry as well, but none of the other flavors that are supposed to be in this blend. I refrigerated this to see if that would let more flavoring show, and that definitely worked. Then I could taste a good amount of candy blueberry, and the black tea is toned down as well. Leaving it overnight let the whole cup go flat, which was a shame because it was pretty nice last night, but I didn’t want a lot of caffeine too late.
