As I suspected with the mug I brewed this morning, this tea needs far less time to steep than the sort of tea I’m used to drinking. Brewing for 3 minutes instead of 4 produced a much more satisfying cup of tea. The first couple of sips tasted a little on the sour side, but after that it was a smooth typical English Breakfast kind of tea. I’m going to keep this set aside for afternoon drinking rather than my first morning cup.
