Not likely to ever be my favorite, but after tinkering I have learned to really enjoy this. I keep the first steep at about 1minute. That is low enough to hold the smoke down to a pleasant level, for my tastes, and long enough for the wonderful black tea to bring forth its flavor. 2nd and 3rd steep I go 2 and 3 minutes respectively.

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.
