Maybe I’ll try this. How long would you suggest? 3 mins?

JustJames

i’ve done up to 8…. it’s never gone bitter. it’s a bud not a blend, exceptionally forgiving. awesome, awesome as a latte IMO. keep meaning to add nutmeg.

I’ll try 185F (85C)/3 mins, I know it’s resteepable.

3 minutes…at least…don’t underleaf either. All the blends this month needed at least 3 minutes no matter what the directions say…Verdant can get mad at me (which they won’t) but this is gospel. 3 minutes…

I used almost 1 tbsp for 1 cup water, it’s pretty standard for me.

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.
