1.5 tsp in 10 oz at 200F for 7 min. I might have finished this yerba mate blend ‘black’ but I added milk and sugar. The spices, carob and cocoa add quite a bit to the brew, which is actually a dark brown liquor, probably because of the roasted ingredients. Flavor is as full and rich as any chai black tea I’ve had. It looks like murky coffee and feels like the caffeine in a stout cup o’ joe. Monday has been launched!
