Steeped it at a hotter temp tonight for a minute longer to see what would result. It is much better at the 165 range. More spice presents itself at the lower temp. The higher temp brought more color to the infusion, but less taste. Maybe I’ll cold brew the leaves for tomorrow and see how that tastes.

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
