2/6/2015 mid day cuppa 3 teabags/12oz/190F/too long.
I always like the aroma of this tea – it’s nice and ‘strong tea’ish with a nice rosehip/hibiscus thing. Sorrowfully, I way over steeped this cup, and it’s hella bitter. The tea is also showing it’s age (I’m sipping it down cause it’s over a year old, bad for teabags) and has a note of cardboard.
I’m not rating it because I know that the flaws in my cup today are flaws in my storage and brewing, not in this tea.
