350mL/180 *F water/however much leaf was in the sample sized package (2 tsp?)
The looseleaf is gorgeous! The little balled leaves look like fern fiddleheads. And, there are pretty little silver sprinkles and little chocolate chips. It also smells delicious! I can smell sweetness, maple, and cinnamon.
Steep 1: 2.5 minutes
Spices, strong flavour of honey and tea, flavours of pastries and maple, brown sugar. The tea flavour was a bit too strong for me, I will do my next steep for less time.
Steep 2: 1.5 minutes
Minerals, black tea (ceylon? something strong like a typical breakfast tea), malt, sweet, cinnamon
This is a nice tea for those who like brisk breakfast teas, but I personally find it a tiny bit tannic. However, try this as a latte/soy milk latte! It is absolutely fantastic! This is a really solid blend, and I like the flavours and look of it. Make sure you pay attention to steep time/temperature to avoid oversteeping.
