I made a blend called A Chocolate Paradise consisting of coconut, chocolate, and cinnamon teas (all black teas). It was being purchased fairly regularly (29 times) and had one positive review (4 stars), but then someone left it a negative review (one star) and it hasn't been purchased since. The bad review said it is bitter. I personally like the blend, but it is black tea, so over-steeping will lead to bitterness. I will admit that I have over-steeped while not paying attention and it was undrinkable. I did specify in the description that it should be steeped at 180 degrees, not 212 for best flavor after realizing how much more the flavors came out after brewing at a lower temp. The lower temp decreases the chance of bitterness, too. Anyway, my reason for posting is not to cry about my bad review, but to see if I could get some more feedback from those who have purchased it. Has anyone else tried it that hasn't left a review? I would love to hear what others have thought of it!
