The steeping time on this depends on how you make it. You either make it gong fu style with more tea, tell water, less time and more steepings or you make it western way.

I would suggest considering washing the tea first by throwing out the first steeping which is said to only have some colour and dust in it.

That would be 15-30 secounds at full boil or just under then throw away this and potentially doing a secound wash for a couple secounds. After the first brew increase the time based on what it tasted like (or decrease it).

When I first started drinking this I had it straight for months before I read that it should be mixed half half with milk or something. I thought it was a bit strong.

I then started mixing it with orange juice and that was good.

It is a good combination. I like it. I think it’s better cold on a hot day without any sugar or milk.

The bag may be biodegradable but don’t put it in your compost because it doesn’t degrade in time to for that. Maybe if you were to collect them and for a while and then boil them without any tea leaves for long enough they would start to biodegrade but I only saw that once for a biodegradable plastic bag on youtube.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

One of the best “fast food” earl grays I’ve ever had (fast food as in bag tea instead of loose).

The best mint blend I’ve ever had. It is a great to accompany yerba mate with it. I find when I do mix it with yerba mate it brings the caffeine out really well.

It is truly a joyful tea. I love it. If you want you can put milk/sugar in though it’s good enough without it.

It’s a nice light tea that has to be brewed at a lower temperature like all white teas.
