[I DID NOT FOLLOW THE BREWING INSTRUCTIONS]
I’m making this at work, looking for fancy teas that can be used as everyday teas. Eighteen was one of the less expensive offerings at Song Tea so I thought I’d give it a whirl. At work, I have a 1 liter tea pot with a fairly sizable basket for the leaves to sit in and an electric kettle with good temperature control.Since the instructions called for a greater quantity of tea leaves than I wanted to use every day, I decided to see what it was like with 1.5 teaspoons per cup of water. As you might expect, the tea came out rather weak using a one-minute brew time.
Once I kicked up the time to five minutes, it produced a rather tasty tea.
I have not yet tried this tea using the brew instructions. I’d expect that it would be an even better tea.
