This tea is three and a half years old, by my reckoning, so the flavour is starting to go. That normally makes for a particularly pathetic cup of tea. But today it turned out pretty well.
What I did was use more leaves (probably 1.5 times as much as usual) but brew it exactly the same (1 min using 80 degC water).
So, until I hear anything better, my solution to old leaves will be to use more leaves and treat it the same otherwise :-)
This was my second pot. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood first time round, because I found it a little bland and probably underbrewed it, then put the leaves back in and overbrewed it. Still, this time it was much better. Really lovely sweet flavour, very much enjoying it. Especially on the tip of your tongue as the first sip goes in. Awesome
