I used ~1 tablespoon of dry leaf for ~375 ml of water.
I notice a complex flavour profile. I’m getting floral notes on the sip leading into a spice taste at the back of the tongue. I can detect the cumin and it compliments the flavour profile rather nicely. I am really reminded of Indian food with all of the savoury spices. I can maybe detect a hint of pistachio as well. This tea has a creamy feel to it and a definite buttery quality. I can taste the black tea flavour quite strongly in the aftertaste.
The second infusion (5 minutes and 15 seconds) looses a lot of the spice flavour. This tea would not likely do well past its second infusion.
Thank you to Ellyn for sending this to me!
