I love love love this tea. My typical steeping routine for this tea is 3 minutes for the first brew (which I don’t rinse, the super strong brew knocks my socks off), and then I add an extra 30 seconds to each additional steeping. I had this at work the other day and managed about 5 steeps before it was time to call it quits (on work and the tea). Strong, earthy and mellow. I tend to really like steepings 2 and 3 for this one.
