I chose this tea last night as something to try and do consecutive re-steeps with, and it worked pretty well. I had 2 steeps, took about an hour and a half break for an audition at the school of music, then two more, adding about half a tablespoon of leaves the third and fourth time.
First cup was good. Very malty, and just a little bit of a honey note. However, it was just a bit too tannic for my taste, but I might have oversteeped a little bit (4 and a half minutes). Still something brisk and enjoyable though.
Second cup I honestly don’t remember about. So I’m going to guess it was alright.
Third cup was pretty weak. I tried adding half a teaspoon of new leaves then steeping for 30 seconds less for whatever reason.
Fourth cup was the best of them, as I think I found the way I best like to prepare this tea. I added another half teaspoon of new leaves and steeped for about 4 minutes and 15 seconds.
Overall, something I will look at re-ordering and staying stocked on as a staple tea.
