1 TB for 450mL water @ 82 degrees, steeped 5 minutes.

So DavidsTea reformulated this one slightly … it seems to me there’s more green and less rooibos. They’ve also re-classified this blend as a green tea. I’d found that this new version sometimes got bitter, and I’d been avoiding it. This evening I tried it with water at 82 degrees, like you would for green tea. While it takes a bit longer to get the rooibos flavour out, both the green tea and the chocolate are smoother and more noticeable. Definitely worth trying at the cooler temp.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
