So, I don’t know whose tealog I read that said Frank’s teas were better with a shorter steeping time, and I’ll admit to being too lazy to go searching for it. Normally I brew honeybush blends for 10 minutes, so that’s what I’d been brewing this one for, and loving it at that steep time. Surely it couldn’t get any better with less?
Folks, whoever said that, was right. Right, I tell you!! Because I brewed this in my One-Touch for 5, poured a little sip (in case I needed to brew it for 5 more), and immediately said “Cake!!!” The cherry seems more pronounced as well. Sometime I’ll do a side-by-side comparison of the two, but for now…nom, nom, nom.
