I was deeply lucky to get a large tin of this on sale. It takes a bit of extra work to get this right, but I would go by instinct if you don’t have anything to measure the temperature or the leaves out of this. Sometimes I would add a bit more leaves for a stronger flavor, and even if the water is too hot, it really isn’t that bad at all. It’s flexible, but smooth. You can’t really go wrong with it. I never had a bad brew with this.
