Their suggested parameters (170 for 1 minute) make for good flavors, but a very weak infusion. So was the 1st infusion.

On the 2nd, I wanted to see if I could bring the flavors out more strongly…
I did 190 for the same amount of time (1 minute)… I knew there was a chance it would be bitter, but thought it worth the chance…..

It was fairly awesome! Slightly bitter/sweet, like a sencha but without the vegetal qualities (which, I normally enjoy, but it was fun to have one that tastes more grainy, or like corn or barley tea). Definitely try this at higher temps, as it is really good!
