My package of this tea was mislabeled which means I was brewing this blindly. However, I do know that 52 Teas rooibos blends tend to be steeped at a slightly lower temperature for a long period of time. So, with that in mind, I put about 1.5 tsps into a tea bag and tossed it into 10 oz of 190F water. I meant to leave it for like 10 minutes but I started playing Crash Bandicoot with my brother-in-law so this steeped for closer to 30 mins. Oops.
With all that said, something went wrong somewhere. It’s fine but surprisingly bland for the long steep time. It’s got a sort of strawberry-ish but mostly generic fruit note which is super subtle and a touch of the rooibos base. It isn’t bad but it isn’t necessarily good either.
