4th steeping. Still good. Bitterness is further down and flavor is finally not as bold as the first three. Still very good, could probably get one more out of these leaves.

Oops. I left this batch steeping for a bit too long. I usually don’t mind when that happens, and this is no exception. It’s just a tad on the big, bold and bitter side, with a bit of a coffee aroma, but I still like it.

This is also the 2nd steeping of these leaves, maybe that has to do with it.

Dramatic stone fruit notes up front, especially plum, with minor hints of papaya, and malted barley, followed by increased sweetness and earthiness with successive steepings.

Very smooth, tasty black tea. Not as flavorful as I would like, but I may have used not enough tea in too much water.

Rather sweet, lots of flavor. Mellow malty overtones. Almost chocolaty, great desert tea.
