Has anyone else purchased this blend? It had great reviews and really sounded like something I'd enjoy, but every time I've brewed it on its own it's been too bitter to drink. One of the reviewers recommended to brew it for five minutes, but in my experience after two it's absolutely undrinkable.
For a 16 oz pot I've been using one scoop of this blend and two scoops of a white chai, which is delicious, but I'd really like to figure out how to make it tasty on its own. Should I use only one scoop for 16 oz? Or should I only brew it for a minute? Any recommendations?
Oh, I gave the blend a very positive review, because it IS delicious blended with the chai, and I'm guessing that all my issues are more because of my inexperience with black teas as opposed to there being anything wrong with the tea itself.
