Bingo! Thoughtful Hubby stuck his Thoughtful Nose into The Other Store, The One That’s Expensive, and scored a box of this Rare and Gentle Treat. (Don’t ask me why I’m in a capitalization mood, Pooh; I’m a Steepster of Very Little Brain.)
Two bags are better than one, but one is just fine, left in the cup, with or without sugar. Apple and chamomile in a very even balance.
Experiments continue with this one; particularly what it blends with in order to tone down its weediness. Half-and-half with some bulk bin green tea worked well with a short steep—which is kind of self-defeating; herbs need to be stewed well to soak out all the health benefits. But it’s a nice savory cup.
Sometimes the sipdown is the best cup because you have just (—) that many extra leaves so you just drop them in since they won’t make another full cup——and the result is richer and deeper and better than the rest.
Happened here. Thick, dark, caramel-chocolate. Think unsweet bakers chocolate, not Hershey Bar. Good stuff.
