1.5 tbsp for 375 ml
Flavours are a bit strong. Black tea is a bit too astringent for my taste. The berry flavouring in the tea tastes artificial and is overwhelming. I will try to infuse at a lower temperature for a shorter amount of time

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

this also makes a really nice cold brew in summer…i started to prefer it that way after a while.

Is 5 tsp for about 13 oz typical for this tea?

Raritea

I usually measure in tablespoons. Not sure how well it translates when you’re measuring out tea. I might try to back off to 1 tbsp next time as well. I generally assume that 1 tea spoon = 0.3 tablespoons. I prefer the tablespoon because I can’t seem to get those long white tea leaves to stay in such a tiny space.

Oh ok. I tend to be a bit of an overleafer anyway; I just wasn’t sure if mf called for several tsp in one cup or not…because you never know.

1 Tablespoon is roughly 3 tsps, depending on your tablespoon and your teaspoons..

I would say it’s significantly overleafed. If I was making it, I’d use one teaspoon for that amount of water and steep it only 2-3 minutes and less than boiling. I find in general that flavoured teas give me the best result if I make them the same temperature as I would an oolong, so it’s been ages since I’ve steeped a flavoured with boiling (on purpose).
