I’m running around my kitchen brewing cup after cup of Lapsang Souchong and Russian Caravan for a smoky tofu recipe compare and contrast, and I figured I might as well brew a tea I’m actually going to drink tonight.
The base is light, and I can tell that it could easily be oversteeped. I only stepped this one for 3 minutes, and it’s JUST got a hint of bitterness. It’s getting more bitter as it cools. What’s up with that?
The tea’s crowning glory is the strawberry flavor, which is present but not overpowering. Margaret seems to do fruit flavors well. I’ve had fruit flavors that taste like lipstick, and this isn’t one of them.
Flavors: Bitter, Strawberry
