2 min steep
maybe i should have gone even less.
in fact i’m sure i should have gone less.
even before tasting it i can smell bitter before i smell pumpkin :(
try again next time.

KittyLovesTea

This is one tea that works well with an added sugar and drop of milk. I bought a pouch a while ago and found that it helps bring out the creaminess.

I steeped for 2:30 and it wasn’t bitter at all. I agree with KittyLovesTea, it was better with a bit of milk and sugar.

Maybe bring the temp down to 205 or 200 if you’re making it at boiling.

all great advice! thank you! i learn a lot from reading reviews but having actual guidance is priceless. i will have another cup later tonight and i’m sure it will be superb!

I still haven’t tried the milk and sugar thing (but I’m sure it would be delicious). I agree with bringing down the temp and also with being careful not to over-steep.
