This came from Courtney, I believe by way of VariaTEA.
So I tried this straight the first time around, and it’s just not my thing. A bit generic with malt and metallic notes. Only a slight bitterness with a short steep time, and a tiny bit of astringency. It’s not bad by any means, and someone who likes more standard breakfast-type or builder’s blends would probably enjoy it. I don’t happen to be that person, so it’s just okay for me.
So for my second pot, I pulled out a little baby creamer jug that was at the back of one of the cupboard, and sipped this tea with milk. It’s not something I often do, but it made it quite fun and tea party-like, which I really enjoyed. I didn’t go so far as to add sugar, because the thought actually grossed me out a bit. (And yet it doesn’t in lattes? Clearly I make no sense…)
So thanks, ladies, for the fun lazy Sunday morning tea time! :)
