Thank you, KittyLovesTea, for several bags of this tea :)
I couldn’t find an ingredient list in English for this tea. I suppose being called “Lotus Leaf” I can assume that’s what I’m drinking, haha.
At first this tea almost seemed spearminty, but there’s a drying out affect that it’s having on my tongue along with some bitterness. I suppose that’s the lotus leaf? It’s hard to say. This tea is quite peculiar. Definitely interesting to try and I’ll see if it grows on me. It could be that I’m wayyyy over steeping this tea. There were no steeping instructions online and usually with herbals I steep forever and ever, so I’ll cut the steeping time way down and see if that gets rid of some of the bitterness.
UPDATE: I steeped this in 175 degrees F water for about 4-5 minutes and it does taste better. Still has that bitterness to it at the end, but not nearly as strong. I’ll still use this tea up just fine at work.
