The second infusion of this tea was quite good. I also did a third and even a fourth infusion of this tea. Strangely, it now is much darker and tastes more like the black teas I’ve been drinking. This could be byproduct of the tannin and buildup in the Breville tea carafe, but it is odd. It also could be related to the longer steeping times I did because I was doing the extra infusions. I much preferred this when it looked, smelled, and tasted like a green tea. I’ll have to check this again in the future.

I’m a long-time tea drinker with experience mostly with tea bags and lots of iced tea. In early 2011, I purchased a Breville tea maker and started trying several loose leaf teas.

I’m enjoying learning more about teas and developing my favorites. I’ve discovered that the Breville makes a great cup of tea and suspect I enjoy most of the teas I’ve tried much more because of the quality of tea the Breville brews.
