Steepster traveling teabox tea!

I didn't really know what I was expecting, it sounded nice (who doesn't like pumpkin pie?) and I figured it was worth a try.

So after the nice spicy scent of the steeped tea...I got a mouthful of bitter tea water.

Disappointing.

I certainly could have used to hot of water or steeped too long (I try to follow package directions the first go round). since I only get one go at each TTB tea I'll have to wait until someone else takes a crack at it.

Post-Steep Additives: lactose free fat free milk, didn't help

Resteep: TBD
