I did something wrong, the tea smells fabulous, but is weak and a bit bitter. I think I need more leaf, and less time?
On the other hand both the tea and leaf smell so fabulous I am happy to just sit here and sniff….

Resteep: zarafina 1 c, same 2 tsp, black-loose-medium
stronger body, astringent, less bitter, black tea, hints of apple and spice
