Steeped as directed (boiling water, 4 min). Aroma was wonderful, was looking forward to exploring it. But tea was slightly bitter (though above average overall). Will try again at 200 for 4 min.
200/4: lighter flavor, same bitterness
200/3.5: more of both
190/4: good flavor, least bitterness
Cannot figure out this tea. Did I get a bad batch? Can’t seem to escape that bitterness.
Tried and tried but finally dumped it. What a bummer.
