I really want to love this tea. I am hitting “like” at best right now. For the first pot I made I just scooped out three teaspoons of leaves for my 22 oz. Beehouse pot, not filling it to the top with water. The tea had a nice flavor but was VERY weak. I thought I might be the problem and I was! These leaves are large and light, so when I actually weighed the leaves, it took four teaspoons to equal standard testing weight. (That would be about the same weight as three dimes.) That made it stronger and the flavor is good, but still not quite strong and rich enough for me. I may be spoiled by original Irish Breakfast. I will try it again, and again…no doubt, until I get better results, but in the meantime I would say that if you want decaf tea, the best I have found so far is decaf Orange Pekoe by Southern Season or Decaffeinated by Harney and Sons. The best FLAVORED decaf black tea I have tried is…sigh….Vanilla Comoro. By the way, I added sugar but no milk. I will try again with even more leaves and see if that fixes it.
