Ok azzrian! I think I have this one figured out. Bumping the rating up on this one now that I’ve gotten the hang of it. NOW I can taste the creaminess with the strawberry. Sooo note to self, revisit all my 52 teas and brew them for less time :) guess I should have tried that earlier but I guess i just wasn’t thinking. This, this is pretty darn good now :)

sometimes all it takes is an adjustment to time or temp :D Glad you like it more now :D

good to know! I’ve had trouble with this one as well. Tastes… burnt?

Sil

Yeah, drop the steeping time down to about2 mins and the temp as well just a bit. Now it’s creamier and no burnt. I still illite strawberry pie and blueberry zabaglione better but this is much more drinkable now lol :)

Indigobloom

oh good. I’ve been hesitant to try it again. Now I will!

Sil

i did the same thing with my caramel cheesecake and the pumpkin cheesecake and it’s back to being as yummy as it was when i first got them. I think frank’s black base just needs less time in the water. :)

Indigobloom

That makes sense. Graveyard mist is a green but still needs less time now that it’s gelled

Are you going with 2 minutes for most of his blacks now? I had been going with 3 recently, which had been ok, but then I had a run of bad bitterness/astringency which made me annoyed. I don’t want to lose flavour by brewing too short a time, but I definitely don’t want a bitter or astringent tea!

Sil

Kit – pretty much yeah. 2-2.5 max seems to be the sweet spot, making everything back to being the wonderful that i remember when i first got it.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
