First Infusion (212, 4 minutes): Decent dark liquor, smoked malty taste. Not very complex or interesting. Very astringent and bitter.
New first infusion (200, 4 minutes): Nearly the same as the 212F, 4 minute infusion. Still very astringent and bitter.
New first infusion (190, 4 minutes): Nearly the same as the previous infusions. Astringency was toned down but still very bitter.
Second infusion (190, 4 minutes 15 seconds): Previous malty flavors barely noticeable with the bitterness.
I will update this with more temperatures. For now, I cannot recommend this tea. Not enjoyable.
Tried at a much lower temperature with long steep 4-5 minutes. Lower temperatures reduced astringency but not the flavors and I was able to get 2 great steeps. As mentioned before the smoky flavor is most prominent. This tea was very enjoyable but nothing too amazing. I think I prefer Keemums more, but I would drink this again.
