1 bag for 450mL water, bare.
Trying the teabag in my larger travel mug this morning.
It does best in 250mL / 8oz / 1 cup, I think. Here at 450mL, there’s almost no body, and the pepperiness gets diluted. (When buying tea at a cafeteri or coffee shop, I almosy always get a small, unless they offer a second teabag for the large. Teabags are stingy.) The scents remain: pepper, minerals, honey, malt, and smoke, but the taste is definitely watered down. Weh.
That’s it. I’m making a proper pot of Black Needles later.
All in all, a really good bagged Yunnan. Just don’t expect miracles from it. And don’t try steeping 1 single bag in a great big mug.
