1 TB for 450mL water, bare.

Tastes like mouldy leaves.

Second sip, I think I get some lemongrass … maybe.

Seriously, I wonder if I have a bad batch. This is nasty.

Steep time: 3 min. Water temp: 82. Rating: 0.

It’s got to be the ginseng. I have yet to find a flavor that meshes with it. Tastes like you’re licking a tree branch, doesn’t it?

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.
