Up until recently; I purchased tea in bags. I decided to start off with the Timmy’s Tea Sampler from Think Geek. I started with the 1UP Jasmine Green tea. I steeped what I’ll admit was too much tea leaves in 212 degree (Fahrenheit) water for 5 minutes as was directed, and it was very bitter, but not being one to give up easily, I tried again with less raw tea, steeping at the same time and temperature, and it had a lovely flavor and aroma.
