2/4 leaves – i think with some fiddling with amount and time it can get to 3/4
Amount: 3 tsp
Water: 1 cast iron teapot full of filtered boiling water
Tool: Cast Iron Teapot with Mesh basket strainer
Steep Time: a little over 2 minutes
Dry Leaf Smell: strong lavender and bergamont
Steeped Tea Smell: mild bergamont and a hint of lavender
Flavor: smooth black tea with some bergamont and then a floral end
Liquor: translucent light brown
This came in a cute tea tin with clear labels including the name and ingredients. I wish it had included steeping instructions!
Next time I might do 3 minutes and / or 4 tsp as it’s a bit lighter than I’d like, but with all the over-steeping and burning of leaves I have been doing lightly I wanted to start light.
Instead of awakening I find it soothing.
Post-Steep Additives: none
Resteep: 3 min, weak and bitter, bleh! ok so next time 4 tsp and stick to 2 min
