1/28/14 Morning tea. 3g/6oz/212F/5min. I made a large pot of this, and it is drinking very nicely with milk and sugar. A great straightforward tea. The brewed tea is an attractive dark amber, a pretty taupe with the milk in. The aroma and taste are tea, with a faint masala like spiciness that boosts the drink from ‘oh its tea’ to ‘Ahhh, tea.’ I’m happy I have so much of this tea! I think I’ll try a stronger infusion next time I brew this.

We wanted a second pot, so I tried a progressive brew on this – I added 3 tsp of fresh leaves to the spent (about 5g), and steeped for 6min. 212F. The second pot was very nice – a little richer, and completely free from the bitterness that progressive brews are prone too. Very happy!
