Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge – December Theme: Holiday Teason Tea #25
From AJRimmer a while ago — thank you! Must have been waiting to try this during the holidays! Oh how I would love a tea that tasted like a thick piece of fruitcake… not this one though. Sadly, somehow this tastes mostly like licorice and rooibos. Looking at the ingredients, there is anise here. The fruits: apple, figs, orange, golden raisins, red currant, and rhubarb (the blend looks mostly rooibos.) This seems like an odd mix of fruits for a fruitcake… I’m not really tasting them anyway. The chicory and anise are taking over. The second steep was much the same: too much anise. That’s a shame.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 15 minute steep
