Second steep is just as yummy, I added too much sugar, I need to start slowly weaning me off of a teaspoon of sugar for every cup of tea. Maybe after I’ve mastered steeping and resteeping, I’ll move on to sweetening ;). But the leaves are still going strong, and I think I’ve got at least one more steep, if not two, in them.
Tasty! I love a good, tasty tea, and this is definitely a hit! I am in dire need of a yummy pick me up this morning, I’m very glad we picked up a bag of this last night. Tasty, tasty, tasty. Definitely a tea to keep in the rotation. I plan to resteep it alllll day.
I have to be honest. I have yet to find a way to brew or sweeten this tea so that I can drink it (though I’m intrigued by the shorter steep time mentioned by the other reviewer and might give that a try). I just plain don’t like it.
However, I do use it fairly often in my cooking. Last night I used it in Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Pie (a Shepard’s Pie recipe from the comic books) and it definitely enhanced the flavour…the more of the pie I ate, the more I enjoyed it. This isn’t a tea I’ll be replacing when it runs out, but it really is quite tasty when paired with beef in a dish.
