I thought I would start today by going another steep with yesterday’s leaf. I really expected a lifeless cup that I would pour out after a few drinks. This is the 3rd steep of an inexpensive tea. Steeped 6 minutes with boiling water. When the cup is really hot it is a bit bland, but when the cup cools the flavor jumps out. It isn’t as bold as yesterday but then my first steep was way too long (4 minutes). I think if you keep the first cup at 3 minutes or less all three steeps would be pretty even. Ahmad is a champion at inexpensive blends. Worthy of a try.

Where do you find Ahmad in your part of the world, or do you order online?

@gmathis……I have seen this brand at my local fancy grocery store (not sure of this specific one, though). If you can’t find some, I could pick some up to split with you!

There carry this and a few other Ahmad teas at the International food market in a nearby college town. Worth looking for.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
