I just got this in a sample from adagio. Dry loose leaf smelled like apricots and it got my hopes up. I steeped it in boiling water for 5.5 mins. and the liquor was a medium amber to black. It tasted like a malty scotch with some dried apricots at the end. I got 3 steepings out of 1 teaspoon of leaf. Overall it was OK at best.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Try less steep time and more water. You’ll be surprised how good it is. I usually go about 1 tsp per 22 oz of water and 4 minutes. You’ll pick up flavors you never knew existed in black teas that way.
