thanks a lot Mad Pots!! It is great to hear the development of this infusion/tea, and interesting too to read your opinions on the taste of it!
it is Mad indeed!
I also interested that you blended it with an assam, i think this would have been my choice also. A tea that id think would cope with the chilli spice well - without being too lost..
I can also see how it may be a good tea for winter.. which sparked my initial thought on the whole idea - a kick on the cold winter days. Would you say it is better as a pick me up/kick? or better as a drink with a spicy meal?
