This blend is strong and slightly bitter. As I understand it the traditional way to prepare this is with a lump of rock sugar and a dab of heavy cream. I didn’t have either of those handy so it got prepared the same way I prepare western brewed black teas boiling water and sugar. I hope this tea has enough caffeine to keep me going when I have the late shift at work today.
I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Perfect Tea Mker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 minutes.
