I found this tea to be fairly underwhelming and overtly complicated to set. Just a little off in Temperature or time, and you have a bitter mess or nothing at all. This problem is (as is often) most apparent in the first 4 to 6 steeps.
Let’s say that the handy size only makes it worse. This is because you see the handy dandy size and think to your self: O this is going to be an easy relaxed steeping. Well let me tell you, relaxed is the last thing I would associate with this tea.
I’ve tried everything: more leaf with lower temperature less leaf with higher temperature. There is no getting it perfect. You have to start somewhere in the low 70°c and do like supper short infusions. You can not break the gall bladder for the love of god do not. This is going to take 5 to 6 infusions if lucky up to 7 to 8 if your unlucky to end with 3 to 4 good ones and if you push it an additional 3 to 4 long infusions.
Now is it worth your time? I would like to say its well priced for the quality, and ok it’s not overpriced, but you can find better tea for this price.
