The first crown of my Triple Crown of black tea. Smooth and full of flavor it is a cup that I can enjoy at any time of the day. It is simply a wonderful black tea.

With my 16 ounce infuser and 6-8 balls (dependent upon size), I start at 185F/85C for 2:45 and increase the temperature for progressive steeps and find very nice cups through 3 steeps with the third being at 200F/93C.

Flavors: Cocoa

185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 45 sec 9 tsp 15 OZ / 443 ML

I like Black Tea, pints of the “Black Stuff” and Siberian Huskies (particularly partial to one agouti pup).
