I find this tea is a very finicky one that demands a lot for me to sufficiently enjoy it. I use about half as much of the dried tea as I normally would for any other tea, steep it shorter, 2 to 2.5 minutes and drink it before it cools. If I accommodate all of these elements, it’s a more positive drinking experience but I’ve discovered this only through several batches I could barely finish. I found my high hopes for a lovely Earl Grey that could be enjoyed any time of day rather disappointed. I’m generally quite comfortable and prefer drinking Earl Greys without cream or sugar. I feel like this Earl Grey rooibos is really astringent and bitter by itself though. I think I’ll stick to my Earl Grey black teas in the morning if this is the closest I can come to a non-caffeinated version.
