Yeah, I’m definitely going to try this one at a lower temperature, similar to Auggy’s… but I doubt I’m going to have that great of an experience with it. I’m pretty sure that I scotched/cooked my leaves though! :(

I think the scorched tea leaves brought out the shortbread smell. If I had more leaves I’d be tempted to burn mine as well. I mean it didn’t sound like the taste was any different. GM was just not meant to make plain tea.

Except for pu-erh! That was nommy.

The buttery smell was delicious, which was why this was very disappointing to me. And then my later steeps tasted like water that crabs and lobsters had swam around in. Ew.

Ricky

Hahah, agreed! Even the second steep tasted like water. Gunpowder was delicious too!
