|"A very deceptive h-"Earl"-bal infusion."|
Brewing instructions weren't present on the Friday site, but rooibos wasn't a hard customer to cup. Generally, an even infusion of six minutes in boiled water did the trick. I went with that using 1 tsp. in 8oz.
The liquor infused to a light copper with a nut-sweet nose trailed by a faint bergamot bite. Some shifting of priorities must've occurred during my six-minute wait. Rooibos was making its presence known. The flavor said differently. Of all the faux-Earls I've tried, this is the closest to the real thing out there. The initial taste was a citrus-sour sock to the tongue, followed by a smooth middle. Aftertaste was relegated for rooibos to impart a sweet finish. A very deceptive h-"Earl"-bal infusion.
