The last Tea Hippie tea from Courtney! I admit, I’m not looking forward to this one, as the base tea in the other two wasn’t great.
Yeah… The base tea here is just so disappointing to me. It’s like a super generic Ceylon with quite a bit of astringency even with a short steep. And honestly I’m not getting much maple at all, perhaps a vague sweetness toward the end?
I added milk and a drizzle of maple syrup to the rest of the pot to finish it off. Somehow it came out tasting a bit like banana, which is odd lol! Happy to be finished with it though.
Flavors: Astringent, Metallic, Sweet, Tannic
