This was amazing tonight!! I steeped it for ages and threw in a little raspberry agave. It was like a dark, raspberry chocolate truffle. So good!! I will need to try this with vanilla and hazelnut agave. It was such a great cup for the evening!
Wow – that sounds absolutely incredible. Great idea!
How did you prepare it? I always find mine tasting flat lately, but it smells divine!
I boil my water to a good boil, over leaf just a pinch and toss in some sweetener, then cover my cup and forget about it for as long as I can stand. I find that it always smells amazing, but the longer it steeps the better it tastes. I also find it flat if I pull the leaves to early, so I steep for at least fifteen minutes.
15 minutes eh? Ok, I will try to let it steep for a long, long time. I thought 10 was pushing it. :P
No problem! I hope it works for you! They are the only things I let steep for that long. I learned to let them go because I took them to work in a travel tumbler a few times and the brew just got better and better as the day wore on.
