OK, I think I must be doing something wrong here. I got a sample of this tea from Adagio today. My first attempt at brewing came out tasting of hot water. I set my Utilitea kettle for green tea, and steeped for three minutes by timer. It tasted like bathwater. I threw that steep out, and steeped again, adding much more tea, about 3 tbsps total for a two cup pot. This was somewhat better, but the result was just mildly sweet, without much in the way of a distinctive flavor.
I suspect this is operator error – my only previous experiences with green tea have been of the premeasured bagged variety. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
