Backlogging! Just wanted to note that I’ve now determined that it’s possible to get three steeps from these bags, not just two. I’ve been using the following times and temps:
-1st steep @ 75 degrees and no more than 2 minutes
-2nd steep @ 80 degrees and 3-4 minutes
-3rd steep @ 85/boiling and 5 minutes
Yep, you can pour boiling water on this white tea…
Although I have to note that I’ve been slightly unfair to Tazo. I recently got into an argument with someone who insisted to me that Tazo puts whole, unbroken leaves in their filterbags(!). I told them there was nothing but dust and fannings in Tazo. I was partially wrong! After the THIRD steep, when I held up the bag, I spotted something like 6-10 little broken leaves inside! How ’bout that.
Turns out that pretty much no stores near me sell boxes of Tazo tea, though. That’s probably a good thing, so that I don’t waste my money on this.
