I might have steeped this for too long. It was very dark and had an acrid taste. Basically, it reminded me of a stronger version of the standard black teas I’ve had in the past that I haven’t liked. (I tried it with rock sugar first and added half-and-half later, but it didn’t taste good either time.) I didn’t bother resteeping the leaves and went straight to a different tea to cleanse my palate.

(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)

3 minutes is my standard steeping time for all teas and then I adjust if it’t too weak/strong. I seem to recall 3 minutes worked well for this tea.

I think I might have steeped this for 4.5. I will try 3 next time. Thanks!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
