I’m a newbie and this was one of the first loose leaves I was able to get my hands into. By itself it’s a bit blah, but I usually add 5 drops of homemade vanilla extract (couple of vanilla pods in a small jar, fill with vodka, wait for 6 months shaking each month) makes it lovely.

Today I tried rinsing the leaves for a couple of seconds and it helped lower the astringency and took care of some sediment.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec
