English style steeping:

Steep 1: Smells not unlike brandy. Fantastic aroma. A little sweet.

Steep 2: Strong flavour still, much sweeter than the first steep.

Steep 3: Flavour is starting to wane, I think I can get one more steep out of this tea.

More expensive than I’m used to for tea, but worth the price. Hard to beat this for straight green tea.

My first loose leaf tea. First steep is quite good. Even after drinking it, my cereal tastes better as a result of the aftertaste. The milk portion of the name is no joke. It compliments milk very well.

Second steep tastes similar. Slightly nuttier.
