86

(Backlogging from last night.)

1 TB for 450mL water, 1 packet stevia (equiv. 2 tsp white sugar)

This excellent flavoured red rooibos does not need, to my taste, the sweetening I carelessly added last night. Like all rooibos, it needs a goodly long steep before th eflavour develops. The vanilla is subtle and plays nicely with the red rooibos. The leaves are not minty or woody. Soothing and energizing all at once. A lovely evening tisane.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

The sweetener does cut downon the woodiness I detected when drinking this rooibos bare.

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.
