My first cup was kind of bitter and left an unpleasant aftertaste, which was disappointing! I was so excited to receive my 52teas package! Determined that it was my own fault, I tried manually boiling the tea in a pot so I could remove it from heat right before boiling, then let steep for 4-5 min. I’m not sure if this is what did it, but now it’s delicious haha!

My sense of taste is famously poor because I can’t smell, but even I could taste the cinnamon, and it feels full and buttery in your mouth. I can’t wait to try it with a little brown sugar and cream tomorrow. :-)

I am a tea newbie living in New Zealand. :-) I often take my tea with milk and sweeteners as I’m not quite accustomed to the warm, hollow taste of plain tea yet. Just like coffee, though, I’m confident I’ll get there haha!

I also have no sense of smell (anosmia) so unfortunately I cannot include those in my notes.
