86

I steeped this one four times today, and I find the flavour changes on each steep (but all four steeps were plenty flavourful)

Steep 1: Very minty, the mint overwhelms both the green tea and the spices. I love the mint!
Steep 2: Very balanced, the mint and spices compliment each other perfectly, i’m getting lots of pepper, ginger and cloves, mingling well with the remaining mint
Steep 3: the mint is largely gone, so the infusion becomes a spiced green tea which is delicious!
Steep 4: largely the same as steep three, a spiced green tea that has zing but is definately not too spicy to turn me off of this tea

If you are looking for a spiced mint or green tea, this is a great one to try. I find it to be very pleasing and it resteeps well!

Interesting. My roommate and I got some in the advent calendar and naturally I hated it, but we only tried one steep. I’d be curious to try the 3rd-4th steeps. How long/what temperature did you do them at?

About 85 degrees and for about 4 minutes, but I don’t really time or measure my temperatures…
