2 heaping tsp. leaf to 500ml. in my Breville.
Last time I had this I steeped it at 3:30 and thought that the taste could be developed a bit more. So tonight I went with an extra 30 seconds, taking it up to 4 minutes, which is my usual steep time for black teas.
I think that this time the flavor of the tea came through even when hot – with the trade-off being that there was more astringency too.
Bottom line: I think it’s a more of an everyday black tea – the taste and smell are wonderful but there’s nothing overly complex about it.
