I only steeped 1 1/2 minutes. It made a nice cup with a minimum of smokiness. This is my preferred way for brewing the first cup of this tea. The later cups I steeped 2-3 minutes. I iced the last cup. It made a great iced tea. Actually think I preferred it iced.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
