Description: This broken-leaf tea yields a bright cup with a floral aroma and powerful flavor. The healthy level of pungency makes it especially suited to the addition of a small amount of milk. A thirty second to one minute infusion is recommended, depending on preference.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 212° (boiling) Steep Time: 1 min.

"It was hard to get a good cup at first. If I steep it for just 1 1/2 min I get a good cup. 2 min makes a bitter cup and 1 min has no flavor." Howseth

"Flavor is weak to my taste-buds - not powerful with a 1 minute infusion. Steeping longer produces bitterness. It's quick steep time useful if in a hurry, though."
