(moving note from 5 days ago to this listing now that I know who makes it )

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 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!

Try a 2 minute steep. Thats what I use with very fine teas.
