Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 5-7 minutes
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Wonderful smell. Dark red colour on first brewing, also on subsequent. That comes from the hibiscus, I guess. Taste is really pleasant, too. You probably wouldn't want to drink too much of this in one go (the flavour would be too strong) but it's really nice at the end of the morning. Maybe a bit too sweet for some people, but you can handle that by shorter brewing times, I'm presuming.
