I brewed this morning and forgot what I was doing and let it steep for 3 minutes like black tea. It was tremendously over brewed and bitter. I dumped that in the sink and gave it 30 seconds, much better. I get the notes of sweetness and camphor. I also get the notes of leather, although this is the first time I remember identifying that note in a tea. Overall, it is a very good tea as long as you ignore the directions on the package to give it three minutes and give it much less time.
I brewed this twice in a 18oz teapot with 7.1g leaf and boiling water for first 3 min, and then 30 seconds. The 30 sec steep was much superior.
