Used two heaping teaspoons, hotter water, and a longer steep time than my last brewing. Brought out a more complex fruitiness, which I appreciate, but still just a bit too astringent for my taste.

You do favor longer steep times than I do. I keep them short to avoid the astringency, but I’m not sure that doesn’t also cut back on some of the complex flavors.

The next brewing might have to give heaping teaspoons and a shorter steep time a go. It’s a balancing act; although, some teas are just smoother than others.
