1.5 tsp for 300mL water @80C, steeped two minutes 30 seconds.
I got a packet of this as a gift from thoughtful friends.
Opening the package, I did not see much tea. Loads of fruit. It’s very pretty. It’s got a tart scent I can’t quite place …
Packet says 79C for water temp. Huh? For a white? Ohhhkayyyyy ….
WHOA! Tartness overload, and a stain leaking from the infuser that looks like blood in the water … oh no. Hibiscus. Oh GAWD NO, please, not hibiscus …
And I notice in the ingredients list there’s acai powder and maltodextrin. GOOD LORD. If I wanted sugar or any of its cousins in my tea, I’d put it there!
I really want to like this, especially seeing it was a gift that the givers went out of their way to obtain, but it’s a pink, mostly flavourless brew that smells overwhelmingly of hibiscus. I would never guess there was any actual tea leaf in here.
If you like a fruity tisane-type of drink, you might like this one. I uh … I can’t taste anything except hibiscus.
