This turned out to be a very smooth tea today, brewed without the astringency of the last tasting. I think I used a bit less leaf, 1 tsp instead of a heaping teaspoon, and I set a timer this time….wooohps. I also looked up the temperature recommendations on kusmi’s website and they recommend a bit less than boiling (185-190) so I shot for that.
I can’t taste the individual berries, but kind of a berry melange, which is more like berries n’ cream as I added a splash of cream. Great with just the cream and no sweetener, as I don’t have any (husband used it all in his tea, and keeps forgetting to replace it)((and by all I mean an entire 100 packet box of splenda in which I used 3 packets myself, gone in 2 weeks)(((I’m angry))) :)
