Sample from the amazing takgoti!!!

I used 4 teaspoons for 16 oz water, 5 minute steep, but the tisane is too weak for my taste. The berry and baked custard (really! baked custard!!) flavors are delicious, but very watery. What a shame!! I think I have enough left to try three teaspoons in 8 oz water and see what happens some other night. Le sigh! If it were only stronger, this would probably be the loveliest rooibos ever created!

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

How much does 4 teaspoons of this one weigh?

That I don’t know – don’t have my scale yet – so I made it like my unflavored rooibos. Sadly, did not work!

I agree. It is waterier [technical term] than I would like. I’m going to dump the tea in the strainer next time and see what happens.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
