I totally forgot I had this. That’s legit, right? I got it about 1.5 years ago and haven’t tried it yet…
1 tbsp for 1 (tea) cup.
20s: I’m going to call this a rinse. It smells like cooking meat. Savoury. Umami. Not in a good way.

15s: It’s been about 15 minutes and finally the water heater is up to temperature. Time to get serious about tasting this. The smell makes me think of okra. Or roasted asparagus. Or the Labrador tea I had last night. Spicy and green. Still with a lot of savoury behind it, which I’m not expecting because the tea looks so light. It tastes green and spicy and thick. Still indescribably light.
15s: I’m really not sure how I feel about this tea. There is a lingering bitterness.
20s: Lots of lingering bitterness. Still savoury.
30s: Now there is an initial sweetness with a lingering bitterness. Still asparagus. And I need to stop. My tummy is becoming rather upset with me.
