Trying again with a shorter steep time. It still comes out very dark and bold. The smokiness is more in the aroma than the taste now. The bitterness has calmed, but it still stands up for itself. I bet I could get a second cup from these tea bags and have it come out even stronger than the first.

I wish the amounts of tea we fill in weren’t just in tsp or g. There should be a button for bags and tablespoons.

EDIT: Y’all, the caffeine in this is outta control. It’s going to be an herbal-only evening for me. Bzzzzz!

Preparation

I wish the tsp or g button let us do decimals. I nearly always do my grams as some odd measurement like 2.8g or 3.3 and it always rounds it off, not showing exactly how much tea I used.

Tabby

Yes! I had that same problem yesterday!

I didn’t even notice that until I read this! My 3.8 grams I logged earlier was rounded down to 3 (weirdly — why not up to 4?).Big difference.

Mastress Alita

Ya, it doesn’t even round properly, it just takes off your decimal amount. It’s very annoying.

Tabby

Agreed!

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. Living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, electronic music geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

After 10 years on Steepster, I have given up. The lack of maintenance, updates, and mobile compatibility have finally discouraged me. I still use my Cupboard and add teas to the database, but I won’t be logging teas anymore.
