Although the directions call for a boiling-steep method, this tends to make a very astringent concentrate best diluted with milk and sugar. When done in a bag and steeped for 5 minutes at 200F it was weak and disappointing. However, when left loose in a mug of water at around 208F and allowed to sit until cooled, you get a warm spicy cup, a nice balance. Be wary of tea leaves in your teeth!

I am a professional barista and tea geek. I have been in the industry for five years with one year as a trainer of both coffee and tea knowledge. I love vinyl records, video games, my teddy bear, and playing guitar.
