I shaved 30 seconds off of my previous brewing time, and oooh! the tea came to life! I like it much better now :) It’s strong but not bitter and I even tasted some almost fruity notes. Sadly, I also managed to break another of my favorite mugs after drinking this (I had 4, now I have ONE!). I am a devastating combination of a lover of pretty, delicate things and a butterfingers.
