2tsp for 250mL water @90C, steeped 5 minutes, drunk bare.
Dry leaf: CTC black Assam and Dooars tea, visible bits of ginger and other herbs.
Dry leaf aroma: deliciously warm spices with some heft from the licorice.
Wet leaf: black CTC pellets, bits of ginger and other herbs. Aroma is very spicy.
Liquor: medium brown and a bit cloudy.
Oooooh, yeah. Assertive black tea (hello, CTC Assam and Dooars) dances with warming spices. Ginger dominates there, with clove and licorice chiming in afterwards. It would stand up well to milk and sugar I think. Must go try that.
This is very warming once it hits the belly, and very soothing. Neither spice nor tea dominate.
