I don’t know what everyone else does with their tea leaves/bag after they’re done preparing tea, but I generally leave mine in all the way. I can’t be bothered to use a strainer.
Strangely this cup doesn’t taste different no matter how long the bag steeps, which is nice. I wanted to call it “mellow” initially (how ironic, given the lemongrass), but it’s not. It’s…rounded, let’s say, and while the lemongrass is distinct, it’s not sharp at all. Once the temperature’s almost lukewarm, there is an added smell/taste of honey.
This tea is the opposite of those which force your attention upon them with every sip, no matter what you’re doing.
