I like my black tea medium light and so I followed the 3-minute steep time.
The tea was really strong and bitter. The aroma was earthy and woody. The aftertaste was bitter as well so I did not particularly like this tea blend.
I had kept some dried apricots on the side and they did come to the rescue. Tasting the tea after taking a bite of the apricot took the pedal off the bitterness. So a combination of dried apricots with this black tea worked for me.
