Picked this one tonight because I am avoiding caffeine. I think this one has begun to lose its flavor. It is a savory rooibos with a fair amount of bitterness. I don’t remember it being bitter but I could be wrong. I can’t concentrate on the flavors anyway, all I can think about is my poor cat, now gone. She died around 11 am today. At least she didn’t sutter. She would have died of starvation as she had refused to eat. The vet offered to rerun the tests but I didn’t think them wrong. He said her numbers were indicative of kidney failure where the other vet wanted me to spend a fortune I don’t have on specialists. Letting my cat go was one of the most painful things I have ever done.
I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 5 min.
