It’s the weekend! I don’t have classes tomorrow, and my last class today went well, since the professor forgot that she was supposed to make a quiz for today, os we got out early! And better yet, I turn 21 this Saturday! Life is good…
Anyway, the first infusion was steeped for 15 seconds, and I was generous with the ammount of leaves that I used, so the result was sweet, yet deep and complex. The hibiscus wasn’t that strong today, but the sweetness of the hibiscus helped to balance out the dark choclate, making it much more pleasant. All in all, a very nice cup of tea.
SEcond cup, 10 second steep. This was interesting. The first thing that I noticed was that a nice lingering smooth aftertaste had developed. IT’s somewhere between creamy and mineralish smooth, and that about as precise as I can get. The hibiscus flavor is a bit more prominent now, which adds some nice floral falvor to the tea, but the chocolate still dominates the foretaste. Other than that, not all that much has changed.
P.S. – It’s rather late, so I don;t know if I’ll get too many cups out of this before I have to go to bed. Sorry.
