Step 1: Boil the Water
We're going to want the water to be at the temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit or 93 degrees Celcius. About 30 seconds off boil will get you there.
Step 2: Heat up the Chemex & Mug
Step 3: Add 20 grams of the Cascara to the Chemex
Step 4: Pour the 400 grams of water in the carafe.
The ratio which works best is 5 grams for every 100 ml or 50 for 1L.
Step 5: Let it steep for 4 minutes.
Step 6: Pour and Enjoy! If you're not used to drinking loose leaf tea - use a strainer to make sure you don't get any Cascara in your drink.
The great thing about Cascara is that it's actually quite forgiving when brewing.
This recipe is what we've found the best results with the Cascara we had, but if you're using a different type feel free to play around with brew time and ratio to see what tastes the best.
