Sipdown Theme: Jan 2023: Malty Tea (In Progress)

Bought a sample bag (20g) I believe from Bird and Blend a few months ago after trying their Halloween count down box. I don’t remember at the time if i had this tea plan, or with oatly anymore. I remember liking it a lot though.

Prep: Western (no additives)
Tasting Note: Dry leaf out of the bag is sooo deliciously fragrant, it makes me wonder if this was the true reason I liked it so much the first time. Once steeped the room fills with that delicous creamy caramel smell.
I am now sipping it and it is astringent on its own. There is a maltiness, and caramel flavor but it unfortunately feel as overwhelmed by the bases astringency. Too bad. I didn’t pay extreme close attention to my steep time, I could of went over my time by a minute or two. I am going to give this a splash of oatly and hope for the best.

I think I need one closely monitored infusion on this one to decide what i want to do with this on next: restock or not, keep or share?
