I don’t get it. This tea has crazy high ratings. I steeped it exactly per the instructions, and yet, it’s just blah.
I don’t get “just like lemon pound cake” at all. I don’t get “buttery, citrusy oolong” either.
I thought it had additional sweetener added to it, so I didn’t add any the first time around. Ick. Big mistake. It just tasted a bit tangy with hints of citrus, and lemongrass. No butter, no nuthin’.
Second steep was about the same as the first, but I added one cube of sugar to the 16 oz cup. Okay, this makes it more… well, sweet. That’s about it. Oh, and once it cooled I tasted flat cardboard. Not butter. Sigh.
No idea what I did wrong here, but this sucks. Expensive tea these days, DAVIDs, and I can’t say I’m thrilled with the results. I’ve got enough for another big cup, so, we’ll see.
Flavors: Cardboard, Citrus, Lemongrass
