I over steeped this for 1 minute (4 vs 3). My timer was set for Rishi’s chinese breakfast and I forgot to reset. While this is still a brisk, robust tea with no bitterness, its lost some of the notes I’ve grown to love. Its still malty but the biscuit aroma is gone. Its still a great black tea but not the same. I won’t over steep again.

That’s valuable info. It’s remarkable what a difference a minute can make, isn’t it?

Yes, MM is amazing when prepared just right, but too much leaves or too long a steep can leave it dishwatery or harsh. Gotta be careful with this one.
