I’ve brewed this a few different times using different steeping parameters and I just can’t get much more than a slightly tart hibiscus/berry flavor and green oolong flavor. I just can’t figure out how to get this right. Best tasting, but most sour/tart was a 3 minute steep at just below boiling with 4 tsp/16oz. Turned a pale pink infusion and fully unfurled the leaves, just didn’t give me much flavor. I will try again with a pinch of sugar and again iced, but otherwise this is moving to the swap pile.

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.
