Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Saturday, August 21st: World Honey Bee Day Tea #4
From last night and second steep tonight! Thanks again for this one, AJRimmer. It’s rooibos with a bit of spices and covered in sticky honey. Not a bad cup – I wouldn’t mind MORE honey and spices. Otherwise, the mug tastes like raisins and rum. Somehow I was wishing for a rum-like cup before I steeped this up? Or maybe I’ve tried this before and didn’t write a note? Who knows. The second steep wasn’t very red, even after steeping a long time – mostly spicy and seemed like a weaker rooibos chai. But instantly upon sipping, it was comforting and I wanted to fall asleep. Not the worst cup from T2 but somehow that bar has been very very low judging from the handful of T2 blends I have tried.
Steep #1 // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
