The dry “bud” has a nice woodsy smell. I was eager to get home to brew it. The wet bud was a little musty but had a sweet cedar aroma. I did not know how long to brew it so I did it for 3 mins. It seemed to be enough to get the flavor from the buds. I don’t know what to say about the tea…I might have to come back to it.

After drinking this again I can see how this tea can grow on you. I have steeped it 6 times. 2mins,5mins,10mins,15mins,20mins, 1 hour. The buds really do take off on the flavor. I will have to try the new silver buds.

Regarding steep time on this one: if you’re making it in a pot, you could definitely steep to 5 min or more. I bring this to work a lot and just let is sit in my cup (refilling water throughout the day)- it does not get bitter at all, only stronger and sweeter.

Good to know. I went ahead a brewed it for 5 mins. I’m getting more from it now. Thanks.

Yeah, it’s amazing how indestructible this tea is. I’ve never reached the end of it even after steeping it for hours and hours.
