Hanging out on the Explore page at the moment, tidying up spam bots while watching the latest episode of Critical Role. A futile endeavour, I know, but on the other hand, every little helps. I was a little amused earlier today by the spam bot that posted it’s spam in the ‘spammers on Steepster’ thread.
So I’m having a cup of this tea and I’ve (somewhat accidentally) made it good and strong. Good and strooooooong. I can see the flavouring oils on the surface of the tea. This is one of those blends that means I’ll never get the tin clean again because it’s going to be so very very sticky.
At this strength, the elderflower aspect isn’t really too present, It still smells strongly anise-y despite not having anise in it (unless it’s black ops anise, of course), but it still isn’t the sort of off-putting sort of pseudo-anise. I mean, it’s hard to explain.
I’m not sure I’ll (purposefully) make it at this strength again. This means I’ve now tried it at regular strength and super-strength. I wonder what happens if I make it intentionally quite weak? Maybe that’ll make it super elderflowery? It’s worth a shot.
