preparing this in the Breville this time to see what the outcome is. 1 tsp per 8 ounces, 190 degrees for 3 minutes.

Edit. Yep, Breville always wins. The first time I made this I prepared it in a big mug thinking the leaves could better expand and it might make for a better cup of tea. Nope. The Breville produced a more enhanced cup of tea. It was like my mouth put on glasses. Same as the first time but more clear and defined.
My opinion of this tea hasn’t changed, I just have to strain less to identify what I was trying to.

This tea becomes more enjoyable on the cooldown. It becomes more soft, sweet and delicate. I’m also noticing a bit of a buttery mouthfeel once it reaches room temperature.
I also think I might be using a little bit too much tea, or maybe steeping for too long. I will keep experimenting.
