Tea #12 from Traveling Tea Box C
This tea was a little frustrating, because I was not able to find steeping directions anywhere – not even on the vendor’s site. I had to average out the different steep times and water temperatures that other Steepsterites had used to make this.
I’m not getting s’mores (no chocolate and no graham cracker), but I am getting very tasty caramel rice cakes with a burnt marshmallow aftertaste that is spot-on. Now, I have absolutely no idea what the best way to make this is for the s’mores effect but what I did was this:
Measured dry: 1tsp/8oz (gotta start somewhere)
Water temperature: 175°F (a guess because of the green tea)
Steeping time: 3min at first, then 5min
I may come back to this another time before I ship the box back off, because I would like to get that effect, but I just really hate guessing games.
