Backlogging. Two nights ago.
This was the tisane I wanted to drink the previous night. A tasty peach taste with a tail of green rooibos. Lighter in flavor, this tisane could stand to be steep an additional minute next time. I had misremembered that rooibos could take multiple steeps. The 2nd steep was water with a hint of peach rooibos. Perhaps it was red rooibos that took two steeps or perhaps no rooibos.

I can very rarely get decent re-steeps out of any rooibos.

I gave up trying to resteep rooibos.

The only time i’ve resteeped rooibos was when I had it mixed with a tea. I tried once resteeping by itself and it was such a failure.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Indeed, I will not be trying to resteep this again. On further thinking, it may well have been an herbal blend that included green rooibos that I got two steeps out of.

Profile

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
