Strain and serve as you wish.
Pairing with Pumpkin Bread: The flavours are reminiscent of fine Islay whiskey: peat and malt. Yata Watte is an earthy brew strongly influenced by its low elevation. Lifted dried herb & spice aromas with perhaps some subtle floral notes. It is a robust tea to meditate over that will leave the drinker filled with vigor. When paired with pumpkin bread the tannins in tea are softened making it pleasant in your mouth. (suggestion by Euro Bar & Restaurant, Auckland)
