over steeped this :( i can finally taste the pepperyness of this now though. i think i like it stronger. i was looking for a cup of something boring and un flavored, but i didnt get it lol. this tea is always interesting when i have it. it has subtle differences each time and i look forword to the next new thing that this tea pops up for me :)

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 30 sec
Cofftea

WOW! If this is only a 1st infusion you definitely oversteeped this. lol Just use more leaf next time.

o yeah i did i can taste it more and more and i drink it. it isnt bitter at all though which is nice. i gotta try and not get myself distracted when i make this :p

Cofftea

NOT bitter? at 6.5 min how the heck did you manage that one? Just seeing the time made my stomach churn lol!

Kitch3ntools

i added sugar lol it was a preemptive strike so i wouldn’t waste it :) usually the sugar wont make the bitterness go away it just makes it tolerable. i wonder if my water wasnt hot enough or i was just really lucky

If I make my tea too bitter, I just steep the leaves again but I cut the time and mix the two steepings together. It usually balances it out.

ooo ill have to try that! especially with my strawberry that one gets way too bitter and no matter how much sugar i add its still gross
