Thank you Jaime for sending me this sample to try. I found it very interesting and very sensitive to water temperature. I made this once as if it were a Rooibos and steeped it for 6 mintues in error and it was terrible. This is the second time around and for some reason I treated it as a black tea and used boiling water. However, I steeped it for 2 1/2 mins and it was infinitely better. I still found it a bit bitter but the tropical flavors did shine a lot better this time around. Next time I will be sure to use a lower temperature. I have high hopes that it will be much better.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

Hi, my name is Rachana Rachel Carter. I am a long time tea addict, a bit of a geek, and as crafty as can be. When I am not running after the kids, changing diapers, and helping with homework I enjoy blogging about how tea applies to my life. For one, I am on a mission to get healthy while using tea every step of the way.
