I’m easily confused. Especially when two conflicting rules butt up against each other. So blends of black and green tea *definitely* confuse me. Do I brew at high temps or low? Risk scalding the green to get the black to brew up fully? Or should you brew at the low temperature and risk a weak cuppa?
This meant playing with the parameters and seeing what worked best. The lower temperature brew resulted in a more fruity/floral brew while the higher temperature brought out the tea more. Both were flavorful cups that had some lovely fruity overtones. My favorite was the lower temperature brew. It had more floral and fruit notes and was definitely NOT a weak cup. Either way, it was a lovely, light brown cup that was enjoyable to drink.
Nice, flavorful, and fruity. Yum.
