Had this for the second time this morning; needless to say, I found it much tastier. I think adding more leaves helped a lot, although I’m still not a big fan. I steeped it for about 4 minutes this time, and it made the tea much darker. It tasted a lot thicker as well. In terms of smokeyness, the roasted flavor in the description was there this time around. I guess I got the steep time/amount right. Definitely tasted that charcoal flavor. Not my favorite, but nicer than my last brew.
