2/4 leaves – i think with some fiddling with amount and time it can get to 3/4

Steep Information:
Amount: 3 tsp
Additives: none
Water: 1 cast iron teapot full of filtered boiling water
Tool: Cast Iron Teapot with Mesh basket strainer
Steep Time: a little over 2 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: strong lavender and bergamont
Steeped Tea Smell: mild bergamont and a hint of lavender
Flavor: smooth black tea with some bergamont and then a floral end
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: floral
Liquor: translucent light brown

This came in a cute tea tin with clear labels including the name and ingredients. I wish it had included steeping instructions!

Next time I might do 3 minutes and / or 4 tsp as it’s a bit lighter than I’d like, but with all the over-steeping and burning of leaves I have been doing lightly I wanted to start light.

Instead of awakening I find it soothing.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: 3 min, weak and bitter, bleh! ok so next time 4 tsp and stick to 2 min

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle.

0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
