Nice solid tasting black tea is the best I can think of right now. Lol. I’m not really picking up anything special here, but it might just be that my palate isn’t really that refined yet. Though I do get a bit of astringency at the end.
Followed company’s instruction for second steeping. Not much different from the first aside from it tasting a bit weaker. Ah well. But this is definitely one I’ll likely keep around.

You might have luck halving the leaves and doubling the steep time :)

Shadowfall

I’ll definitely give that a try. I certainly have enough left to keep trying until something tastes different. Lol! Thanks.

No worries, enjoy! This is a great tea to train your palette with, too :)
