This is from StarFevre a while back! Thank you! I was expecting a harsh brew for some reason, but no, this is a nicely balanced delicate blend. I thought the raspberry leaf wouldn’t be this light, but it seems like the raspberry leaf in Bird and Blend’s teas. Very agreeable and delicate, not overly savory or vegetal. I’m tasting a lot of vanilla which is nice, as there is supposed to be vanilla here. There is also only a hint of chrysanthemum in these full blooms. The rooibos is a nice base. I actually like the resulting flavor here! The second steep has more of a herbal flavor, not as special or vanilla as that first cup, but not bad.
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 4 minutes after boiling // 6 min
