You really need to be able to mind read some of these Nilgiris. Label says black tea but its anything but oolong. Mega florals, citrus and as Doug F put it “fresh tomato essence” make for a very pleasing tea. I usually follow the brewing guidelines, I did for the winter version, but messed up with too much tea falling in the wet pot so I used 6g in 220ml, steeped for 60 secs then 50, 90, 120, 240. I wouldn’t recommend doing the brewing in this fashion as it does impart a bitter aspect in the soup that although it doesn’t bother me, it will to someone, so beware. Almost all of Teabox’s teas are brewed 2-3 grams in 180ml and 190F for 4-5 minutes, stay with that and you can’t go wrong.

190 °F / 87 °C 1 min, 0 sec 6 g 7 OZ / 220 ML
