So I experimented by drastically changing from 205 degrees for 3 minutes to 195 degrees for 1 minute. I just didn’t want to give up on this tea. A bit weaker, but no change in the turtle department :( All I taste is black tea that I’m not too fond of. I’m trying so hard to taste turtle but it’s just a faint aroma that comes and goes, and a bit of an aftertaste that I really have to hunt for after I’ve swallowed to notice. Sigh. I don’t know what to do with my two bags now.
