I used 2 and 1/2 scoops of dry leaf for my 473 ml thermos.

This tisane is satisfying as a mint tisane. I was initially drawn by the prospect of having fruit flavours mixed with the mint. I was also intrigued by the addition of the juniper berries. The mint flavour isn’t too pronounced and allows the apple and juniper berry flavours to come through. Sweet on the finish with a satisfying refreshing mint feel. The flavour reminds me of the taste of eating fruit after brushing my teeth.

For my second infusion, I used about 1/3 less water than from the first one and allowed it to infuse for 10 minutes. The mint flavour was less prevalent and the apple and juniper were allowed to come through a little bit more.

This is not a tisane to leave in while drinking. The apple gives a tart flavour which mixes very poorly with the mint.

Cold-brewed this tisane has a nice mint flavour which does not compliment the sour-tartness of the apple.
