Steeped the leaves a second time, at 195 for 4 minutes. Not sure this is one of the teas that lends itself to resteeping.

Found a bottle of Coffee-mate that has been sitting in my cupboard for years. It’s French Vanilla flavored, but I thought it might help with the bitterness. I’ll need to try it with a first steep, but it does make this a bit less bitter.

And now I’m settling down to knit a tea cozy for my teapot. Happy Sunday!

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.
