I think this is growing on me. The tea smells wonderful, almondy, bakey, yes, brioche, exactly.
I first tried it last week. I brewed it as instructed, with 1 heaped teaspoon per 6 oz water, and a 4 minute steep. Eeeww. Yes, brioche, but burnt brioche, and bitter black tea. Very bitter. Not nice. Way too strong.
I tried it again. A small teaspoon, 12 oz water, 2 minutes steep. Better. Not so burnt, not so bitter. A bit weak though.
Yesterday, I found myself craving a little something almondy, bakey, brioche-like. Ahh, I’ve got just the thing! One tsp? No, too whimpy, need two. Two minutes? No, four sounds better. Yum! Burnt brioche!
Today: must drink Brioche, must drink Brioche, must drink more Brioche!
I won’t rate until my thoughts about this are more stable.
