Soo… my sister tested positive for covid yesterday. Now we are waiting to see if she passed it to our parents (or me) but they’ve had no symptoms for a week since seeing her, so far, but I know symptoms can’t always be present. She thinks she got it at a bar. Personally, not to harp, I have thought from day one that it is not the best idea to go to a bar/restaurant during a pandemic, but we have always had the most opposite of mindsets. All of my relatives on my dad’s side of the family went to a restaurant about a month ago (including 92 year old grandma) and I thought this was um, ridiculous that I had to worry about losing all my relatives at once. Please everyone stay safe and keep in mind that if there ARE uncaring people out there, who know they already have the virus, they could be being reckless and going out to bars/restaurants.
Thank you again, AJRimmer! Again, another cup of hibiscus hibiscus hibiscus, or Teavivre calls it roselle. I would hardly believe there is orange even present in this cup, in a blind taste test. But I made sure to get a healthy, lovely looking orange wedge in the infuser. The second steep was the same. It’s just a missed opportunity drowning all of these herbal teas in roselle. Too much is too much. And maybe that is the key to so many disliking hibiscus. It’s not a bad flavor, really, until it ruins too many blends that you’re expecting so much more from.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 5 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 5 minute steep
