1.5 tsp for 300mL @ 95C, steeped 6 minutes.

Yes, I steeped it a long time. And that’s okay, because it did not get bitter.

I hardly tasted the mate at all, getting much more of the honeydew and green rooibos. It’s sweet, and it tastes mainly of honeydew melon. Quite agreeable, if you like honeydew. I’ll report later on any mate buzz.

As it cools down, it does give off that bubblegum scent I found distasteful in DT’s Whiskey White (an abomination) and Goji Pop (the horror, the horror). The bubblegum thing might be a deal-breaker for me.

I cackled at the Heart of Darkness reference. Now the next time I have an awful flavored tea I’ll think the horror, the horror…

Hee hee. Glad I made you laugh.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE.

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.
