Second time tasting this tea now, in my tea class. I’m starting to think this particular tea might be a bit of an acquired taste. I like it a lot better this time around than I did last time. I didn’t feel the same cooling sensation but the bitter aftertaste is significantly less noticeable. Not entirely sure how my classmate prepared it, but I imagine she must have done something different than the last time I tried it since it tasted so much better. Still has the same mildly chocolately smell that I love!
