From the Round 3 Here’s Hoping TTB

I have to admit that the steeping instructions on this one scared me. It calls for 2 tsp. of leaves for a 6 oz. cup, 212 degree water, and a steeping time of 7 – 8 minutes. Yikes. Fortunately, Awkward Soul, who added this tea to the box, posted a nice review of it which allowed me to set my fears aside and steep it according to the instructions. The resulting tea is thick and strong, full of malt and raisin notes. There’s also some astringency but not as much as I was expecting and no bitterness. I’ll definitely resteep the leaves later today as I’m sure they have more to give.

I have to say that I love additions like this to tea boxes! Chances are I would never have had the opportunity to try this tea any other way.

Tea obsessed since 2010.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
