Hmm…might you have mistaken the instructions for 1/2 teaspoon instead of 1/2 tablespoon?

Continue to enjoy this tea and while I get different notions of flavors based upon temperature and steep time, the smoothness of this tea continue to impress.

Shelf life being what it is, time to reorder so the tin is full.

Having now had numerous efforts with this tea, I confirm my rating and find this black tea simply delicious. I have experimented with temperature and steep time and while there is a difference in flavor produced, I experienced no difference in enjoyment.

This tea will be in my cupboard for as long as I can obtain it.

First tasting for me of this tea.

Very nice, smooth with distinct sweet, chocolate taste.

The flavors appeared more distinct in the second and third steeps as I raised the temperature of the water and allowed a longer steep time.

Another quality black tea from Teavivre.

Flavors: Chocolate, Honey

Easy to clean and screen works really well even with fine tea. Can’t imagine a better way to steep and enjoy a cup a tea at work. Fantastic device.

Easy to use and while temperatures are not perfectly accurate its darn close.

Found mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond and the always available 20% off coupon was a nice discount.

A fantastic cup of black tea that for me hits all the right notes.

Not as strong with cocoa as Black Pearl but the taste, quality and smoothness of this tea sets it apart.

The second jewel of my Teavivre Black Tea Triple Crown. While the cocoa is not as pronounced as in Black Pearl it is present and provides a soothing, smooth cup with a softer touch. Very nice tea and is one of my go to teas.

The first crown of my Triple Crown of black tea. Smooth and full of flavor it is a cup that I can enjoy at any time of the day. It is simply a wonderful black tea.

With my 16 ounce infuser and 6-8 balls (dependent upon size), I start at 185F/85C for 2:45 and increase the temperature for progressive steeps and find very nice cups through 3 steeps with the third being at 200F/93C.
