1.5 tsp for 250mL water @ 98C (DON’T DO THIS), steeped 3 minutes.

I lost focus on the kettle here at work and poured boiling water on this beautiful tea. YUCK. I can still get some ginseng sweetness, but mostly it’s a bitter medicinal horroshow, like getting a powdery pill stuck on the back of your tongue. Totally my own fault. I put this up as a warning.

Generally, I find this tea good for at least 3 steeps of 3-4 minutes each, if the water’s at the right temp.

Never had any luck with ginseng myself … tastes like you’re licking a tree root.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
