Second steep: after the first cup, I just pulled out the infuser and set to the side. Brewed the leaves for 5 minutes with cooler water (not sure on temp). Should I have steeped longer/hotter? Either way, this cup was still pretty good. Still murky and nutty, but a little less chocolatey. Added salt again, and it was either too much or the tea hadn’t steeped for long enough.

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
