The leaves on this are really pretty.. the little rings are CUTE. However, I’m having a touch of an issue getting it to brew right. The steeping instructions on the site say 6-8 rings per cup with water “a little under boiling”.

Which sounded a little off, so I used that amount, and water at 175. That brew was almost clear and fairly flavorless. So, I’m off to try it at like a 190. We’ll see how that works.

I want to try this just to see the rings!

Wonder what tiny-size the curling iron is for these little leaves :)

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
