Tried it at 3 minutes and got the slightest hint of vegetal flavors, and just a bit of roastiness in the aroma. Kept the bag in there and at 5 minutes there was a little more astringency but remarkably just as little real flavor as before. I went all the way to 7 minutes in an effort to wring a shred of character out of this tea – an unheard of effort on my part with regards to a green tea. Sadly, it was all for nought.
Farewell English Garden teas!
