A dark corruption of Sailor Chibimoon, this tea is entirely comprised of black teas in rich fruit flavors like raspberry and pomegranate, with a tartness imparted by hibiscus and rose hips. Steeps a deep, dark red color just like the Black Lady's lips.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.
In my experience, black teas shine around 180-195F/82-90C. I prefer the lower end of the bracket, personally. I think the flavor comes out smoother, crisper, and with less tannins and the leaves resteep better. This tea will get approximately 3 resteeps. If you want stronger flavor, add more tea leaves, not more time. To prepare iced, simply use twice the tea leaves and half the water you usually would. Use the same amount of time (3 minutes). Drop over a full cup of ice, to flash chill and dilute to regular strength. To conserve leaves, just steep hot and put into the fridge.
