When steeping for 60 seconds, I get about four steepings in small cups and am able to minimize the unpleasant tannins. Still, it retains a hint of astringency, which makes me wary of increasing the steeping time. Nevertheless, I do also steep this tea for 2 minutes for a full mug without it becoming bitter and astringent. The flavour and colour are light, similar to green tea, but without grassiness and with characteristic Darjeeling tartness.

Bio

Mr Steep likes tea plain, or variously with lemon, fruit juice, honey, spices, cow’s milk or soy milk, as appropriate.

Mr Steep avoids flavoured teas: flavouring rarely makes something out of nothing.

Mr Steep applies this philosophy to good coffee, too.
