Steep 2: PERFECT. 4 minutes with used stuff, and this is amazing. I preemptively put a whole teaspoon of honey in it, which wasn’t really needed. The vanilla has toned down so it’s less of a punch in the face, and the almond and chicory are blending really well.
I think I need to do a shorter initial steep, then plan on resteeping the “leaves” a few times in an evening.
