drank Black Tea by Ten Ren
60 tasting notes

Since I can’t seem to get good information on steeps longer than 5 minutes, I’m going to switch teas. At 3:30 the Ten Ren is definitely astringent and smoky, but not bitter at all. I’m not sure if the body is full, but its definitely not light. Either the tea is mellow, or I am. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get myself stressed out and try again.

Basically what really happens. As I mentioned in my last post about the Assam, After 5 minutes, the tea has cooled down far enough that it doesn’t really keep steeping. So I’m stopping my tests at 5 minutes.

You could use a tea cozy. I’ve also heard cast iron keeps water hot for quite a while.

Before dabbling in tea, wait until it has cooled to 120º.
