They were out of the sample I ordered, so I had to pick another. Piccolo recommended this one, so I gave the OK.
I’m either learning that I just don’t prefer rooibos, or I just am not getting anything from these blends, so take this note with a grain of salt.
I double leafed this one, but I must still be brewing it wrong. Usually I have to underleaf a chai since they’re soo spicy, but I’m not quite getting what I want out of this. Maybe if I boil it for a very long time? The steeping directions say 5mins at 212F, which isn’t what I did, because I’ve never had to steep a tea for that long at that high a temp before. I haven’t quite mastered the learning curve for this one yet, but I might run out of this sample before I do. The sample size is 8-10 servings for 8oz cups, I usually do a 12 oz cup, so this might only last me 3 tastings if I keep doing double leaf. =(
