I adore jasmine tea (hence the screen name), and I am in search of the ultimate one to bribe myself to answer my inbox each working day. This has a nice scent but it’s too bitter for me. I waited about 15 seconds after boiling (instructions say just under boiling, something like that), exactly 1 teaspoon per cup of water (got 2.5 out of the sample), and steeped for about 4 minutes, which is on the long end of the range they recommended. I could try to steep it for 2 minutes, the short end, to tone down the bitterness, but the jasmine wasn’t strong enough to make me buy another sample. Plus, I don’t need that kind of pressure to make a perfect pot. I may not even finish the 2.5 cups I brewed.
