I decided to give this tea another try, and chose it as my before bed cup. I managed to get a pretty good brew with boiling water. Now I’m thinking the water wasn’t hot enough for my previous brews because this time I managed to get a pretty good cup. I used 3 tea bags in a large 3 cup mug and over-steeped the tea by leaving the bags in while I sipped. I was able to coax out more of my beloved tannic flavor; and also added a touch of dark honey, which brought forth more of the plummy flavor.
The taste of cinnamon is still not very noticeable but I detect it somewhere in there tempering the flavor from becoming too bright and fruity, and also adding a touch of warmth to the overall composition.
I’m wearing Natori by Natori while I sip this…..a plum,rose, and amber fragrance with a touch of patchouli.
