Three delicious steeps :) I used a little extra leaf today! The extra leaf + a temp of 200 made for a very satisfying monkey. Now it’s perfect.
This whole round of fussing speaks volumes to me about how a small sample will let you know if you basically like a tea or not, but to refine things, you really need an ounce or so for playing. I started my tea journey thinking in black and white (black tea! one teaspoon leaves! boiling water! Thee End!), and now i am starting to see all the shades of gray :)
