My first rooibos! First off, thanks to JennyFur for this tea!
I currently microwave my water (electric kettle for Christmas though!)and I pulled it out at 205 degrees ~ close enough. I steeped for around 2-3 mintues in my ingenuitea steeper.
For sure not a black tea! So much more delicate. (It always takes me forever to take the first sip because I am afraid I will burn myself!)
Finishing off the cup:
I can not really taste mint in this. I am really glad the chocolate/sweetness is not too overpowering! Its a good “undertone” to this tea. I don’t really know what rooibos is supposed to taste like, but this good nonetheless! I think next time I will use 1.5 teaspoons per 8 oz because it tastes a little too much like water (if you get what I mean).
Overall, a really great first experience with a rooibos tea :)
p.s. the shamrock sprinkles were so cute :D
