Since my tasting note for PTA mentions caramel and strawberry, I thought it would be awesome mixed with the wonderful Ruby Pie. And it is! Though I don’t think neither blend is improved when blended with the other, they’re certainly delicious together — not a bad idea at all to blend them. They result in such a light brew anyway (I expected a deeper flavor though, since this is essentially two servings of tea in a brew basket!) Sadly enough though, I don’t think this harvest of PTA was as amazing as others that I’ve had.
Steep #1 // 1 tsp Ruby + 1 1/2 tsp PTA // few minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 min
