Another one from TreeGal! Thanks so much! I definitely wanted to try some of this from the Christmas advent. I used one teaspoon and there was one full blackberry in there. But somehow the green tea overpowers the flavors, even though I didn’t use too much. Luckily there is some Chun Mee in there too, and it’s not just full gunpowder. I think the gunpowder seems to be too much for these additional flavors. I was only tasting hints of blackberry, sadly no custard or tart. The second cup seemed mostly plain green tea. I was following the steep instructions as well as I could! I don’t know what happened… the name was too promising for this one. The green tea just becomes too bitey and astringent too quickly. I will try a very short steep next time.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
