So evidently when I made my first pot of Rhubarb Vanilla Ale this morning, I misread the instructions and used one teaspoon per cup rather than one tablespoon – whoops! Onto take two: this time, the base is stronger but still smooth and not smoky. The rhubarb and vanilla are coming through about as strongly as they did before. I am getting the hops, on the end of the sip and in the aftertaste, and I do find them slightly bitter and just weird-tasting. Still, they’re not strong enough to ruin an otherwise very pleasant cup of tea for me. I’m keeping my rating the same, just FYI.
