Amount: 2 tsp
Water: 12 oz hot spigot water
Tool: kati loose tea system (my Review here.)
Steep Time: a little over 1 minute (http://steep.it/)
Dry Leaf Smell: amazing, delicious! sweet, berries, hints of champagne and vegetation
Steeped Tea Smell: sweet, vegetal, berry
Flavor: vegetal, berry, sweet
Liquor: translucent murky olive green
I think less time cooler water or less time? and a touch of sweetener, really enjoying this berry green though.
Yes, let the spigot water cool and keep it to just a minute and it’s a sweet vegetal with hints of berry. I wonder how this would fair as a tea cocktail?
This was a surprise gift from Newman who had read about my trip to the tea and champagne bar in NYC. Not only did it have a nice note but it was the most observant gift I’ve received in a long time!
