I’ve had this a few times previous, but delayed writing a review as I’m having trouble describing what I am tasting.
I tend to only steep my teas for a few minutes and re steep them multiple times. It just seems like a waste to not do so.
So the first steep on this tea is kind of . . I would have maybe said harsh, but I see someone else described it as sharp, and maybe that might be a better word? Its also astringent though I would not describe it as sour at all. It seems mostly on the back end of the sip and after swallowing.
Second steep, is a little more mild, but still astringent. I wish I had a better description for the actual flavor, but I am severely lacking the words.
Overall, this is not something I am enjoying, though I may try it a few more times. Might work better as iced or cold brewed.
