601 Tasting Notes
1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml
This tea has a definite muffin-like note in the aroma.
The fresh muffin aroma transfers to the flavour. Fairly authentic blueberry flavour (especially near the end of the sip) in the background but the baked muffin taste overpowers it. Smooth flavour that blends well with the rooibos base.

Strong floral taste on the sip. A little bit astringency present; I may want to change the infusion parameters. The astringency seems to cloud the fruity guava taste.
In the future, I’d like to try infusing 1 tbsp of dry leaf for 375 ml of water at 96 degrees C for 3 minutes.
I used 1.75 tablespoons for 375 ml
Much creaminess and very authentic cantaloupe flavour. I’ve noticed that this tea is difficult to measure out with a tablespoon as the leaves are quite large. It may be best to measure the concentration of this tea with a mass per ml ratio. I will be looking to invest in some kind of tea scale in the future.
