I used to drink those "coins" at work. I my journey started with the pale brown -> dark drown -> pale green -> dark green, I used to drink them all with milk and sugar because back then I did not stand the taste of coffee. Then I discovered French press, and I started with those 0.25kg whole bean packs from starbucks. I was madly in love with the Guatemala and Verona blends, but those were expensive (EUR 8/0.25kg) so I switched to dark Yemeni roast from a very old shop with garden rosemary added to it by a friend of mine, then this friend moved to Germany and I switched to a local franchise that sells coffee for EUR 2/0.25kg and tastes like anus, but it does the trick. I also tried Caribou, a slightly cheaper (EUR 6/0.25kg) variant than starbucks and it I liked it.
>How long do you let it draw usually? I find black tea is often too bitter for me, especially if left to draw for too long. I only was able to drink it recently as I started adding milk
I instantly drink it after pouring it from the kettle, but I usually let it boil for around 2-5 minutes, depending on the mood that I'm in.>>14540
It takes some practice to get it right, but there are machines that does everything for you and apparently they taste good, pic related.>>14542
ah, كركديه (каркадьэ/Розелла/Roselle). A very healthy and tasty drink indeed!
You buy a pack of dried roselle leaves, soak them in a bowl of boiling water and let that sit for two hours, then separate the dark red liquid from the leaves with a colander and put in the fridge.
There are teabags of that, but they're very weak compared to the original stuff.
