Still spicy and cidery. The cardamom really came through on this steep, more assertively than on past preparations. Maybe it needed a slightly longer steep time. I steeped for four minutes, rather than the recommended three. The ginger was also more readily apparent on this steep.I might try doubling the mix next time to see if I get a more full-on nutty and less baked apple taste, which is what I get when following the directions.

I’m ratcheting the rating down a little bit, I feel like I should get more from this tea than I actually do. More strength, more nuttiness, just more in general.
