Loose Leaf not teabag
Amount: 6 tsp
Water: 750ml filtered 212°
Tool: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker BTM800XL (herbal, strong)
Steep Time: 5 minutes
Dry Leaf Smell: Raspberry, but the fake flavor kind not fresh berries
Steeped Tea Smell: fake raspberry flavor (exactly like the torani syrup)
Flavor: RASPBERRY, and tart
Liquor: Opaque dark purple-red
Raspberries, check. Tart is the hibiscus, and probably the color too, the citric acid and orange are also tart. Not getting what the rest of the stuff is doing.
This reminds me of raspberry zinger, I think mixing this with a bit of lipton, or maybe some Rooibos Tropica.
Hopefully it’s better iced, because right now it’s nice, but not anything I’ll buy again (too many fun herbals out there!).
