I am still not 100% sure how I feel about this tea. I like my black teas quite stong and often leave the tea bag in when drinking them. Sometimes they get bitter so I decided not to leave my leaves in with this one. I steeped for 5 minutes in my Tea Tumbler travel mug. I found that quite weak so after a few sips I decided to put the strainer back in. I think I will leave the tea leaves in all the time I drink this although next time I will be adding milk to see how it changes my feelings about this tea.
I am enjoying it and will drink it often on cold days but I just need to figure out how to best enjoy it.
