OK, lets try this again. The tea bags are 2grams each, so I used 2 bags for 10 oz of water and I added 1/2 tsp of honey. I got a much darker steep and tastier brew. It smelled and tasted more like a roasted grain and had good kick of caffeine. It even had a malty aftertaste and bitterness, even though it was slight. The honey rounded out the flavor. I enjoyed this cup more than my first one. Now I need to try the loose leaf with a gourd and bombilla. I’m also going to up the rating by 5 pts.
