tried to drink this in honor of the World Cup. WAY oversteeped it (It is very fine, almost like coffee grounds, and therefore very strong). 3-3:30 min is too long! It was bitter and astringent, and no amount of sugar or cream could save it (I tried!)

Will try again soon with much lower steeping time. It is very good when prepared correctly!

I think the tea I have is the Taylor’s of Harrogate, so I’m changing my cupboard entry to that one.

I also used WAY too much leaf – next time I think it should be 1/2 tsp per 8-10 oz water. It is so fine, but expands quite a lot. Powerful stuff, this tea is!
