San Diego airport brew whilst I wait for my plane to Colorado to board. The staff that made the tea used boiling water, or extremely hot… but definitely not 175-185F, which I think would have made this tea better.
Putting the above peeve aside, the tea is nice. I order this everytime I fly out of San Diego, and will continue to.
Aroma and taste are nutty and vegetal, as described, but the “buttery finish” never happens for me, most likely due to the water temp.
Maybe in the future I’ll ask to have them not put the bag of tea in the water until I can let it cool down.
