A mere two minutes and 200 degree water made this a MUCH more delicious tea! Even at 2 minutes it’s dark and earthy, chewysmoky, and now the sweetness has come out to play. I would even try my first steep at a minute next time, just to see!
VERY invigorating! THIS is my new go to tea for when I am feeling that “hit by a truck” feeling at work.
Did another steep at 2 minutes and it’s just as dark and delicious – even sweeter.
I have a feeling I’m going to be drinking these leaves for at least 4 steeps :) :) :) Wow. At $22 a lb. (and ashmanra told me about a code where I got 12% off my order!!) I feel this is a true bargain. About .14 for a teaspoon of leaves, which makes approx 4 steeps of tea? Harney high quality? Sheesh!! Absolutely thrilled with my latest Harney order!
EDIT: Yup, 4 steeps. On steeps 3 and 4 it starts veering into a milky mouthfeel.
