Leaf: Whispy little twists.
Water: Below boiling, bubbles were formed on the bottom of the kettle and had just started being released.
Amount: I used approximately 3g of tea in 8 oz of water.
1 min: This tea is a dark red-orange color. It smells earthy and tastes slightly tangy.
3 minutes: The tea is now a rich red brown. However, it doesn’t taste like much, but that is likely because I ate a piece of candied ginger just before drinking the tea.
