I added some sugar this time to see how it would affect the taste. I’m still picking up ginger and the flavor of those coffee crumbs on top of the coffeecake, but no actual cake flavor. This is still good, but not quite hitting the spot like it did last time. I think I may have underleafed this one. I used 1 teaspoon because I’m trying to stretch out my sample from Sil. I might add the rest of the leaf to the resteep and see if that helps.
