70

I… really need to work on how I brew blacks from David’s. It says 4-7 minutes on the package. I brewed it for 6, and, well… the first few sips were nice, but the bottom of the mug in particular was quite bitter. Added milk the second time, and that mellowed the flavour nicely, but I’m still unable to get the bitter flavour out of my mouth.

Hopefully going to brew this again eventually, with a much shorter brewing time. However, as I did follow the directions as written, I’m going to rate it based on my experience anyway. 70 because the flavour was nice to begin with, but I can’t give it higher when the bitterness is what I remmber the most.

I find Davids black teas only need about 3 minutes. I generally throw their recommendations out the window !: )

:) Yeah, I’m beginning to see that. Though, for what I’m doing, I’m steeping it the length they say to see how it tastes the way they’re recommending. And then I can tweak as much as needed!

I tend to stick to the short end of their rec’s these days…..
