I’ve tried 4 cups of this in the last 2 days.

I’ve tried using their 6-8 rings per cup idea at higher temps and lower temps. I’ve tried more rings and higher and lower temps.

With 6-8 rings per cup at lower temps, it’s so pale that you can barely tell that tea was steeped. The flavor was VERY delicate. To the point where this un-subtle tea drinker kept eyeballing the glass as if it was kidding.

At higher temps, it was a little stronger, but still very subtle, more astringency.

With more leaf, the astringency was stronger and the flavor was still delicate.

This is just not my cuppa. If any of you would like to swap for it, send me a PM, and we can work something out.

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.
