1.5 tsp for 300mL water @98C, steeped five minutes.
A heavy artificial cherry flavour, like cough drops or cough syrup. Some acai notes. Coffee and roasted mate. Something sharp in the scent — probably juniper. Hibiscus comes out more with each sip. Damn it, why hibiscus? It ends up dominating everything it touches. (I loathe hibiscus. I knew it was in the blend, but I remain optimistic that it will work this time, somehow … it never does.)
Four sips in and I have to toss it. I want to like this. Can’t stop thinking about cherry Vicks drops.
