Amount: 1 tsp (recommended 1.5 tsp per 8 ounces)

Liquor: translucent medium brown
I should have added a bit more leaf, but I was too excited and didn’t read the directions before I began.
It came out as a very decent earl grey, nothing too different from the normal (creamy or otherwise) I could detect. It was a bit on the mild side and I wonder if using strong instead of medium would have served the tea better?
It was only a sample, and I split my samples with my mom, so no fiddling with this one for me. There are plenty more earl greys that are more unique and I would prefer for me to worry about revising the preparation of this one.
Post-Steep Additives: none
Resteep: Zarafina black-loose-medium
Weak but serviceable cup of tea
