Steeped the leaves a second time, at 195 for 4 minutes. Not sure this is one of the teas that lends itself to resteeping.
Found a bottle of Coffee-mate that has been sitting in my cupboard for years. It’s French Vanilla flavored, but I thought it might help with the bitterness. I’ll need to try it with a first steep, but it does make this a bit less bitter.
And now I’m settling down to knit a tea cozy for my teapot. Happy Sunday!
