I really guess I am not too much of a green person :(

Those steeping parameters aren’t really my cuppa- maybe you could try the standard 160-180 for 1-3 min?

my prior trial was 2 min 165, a little nuttier that time but still tinge bitter at the end

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
