This is my second attempt at this. The first was a miserable failure. I tried eight teaspoons with 16oz at 10 minutes. It was bitter and disgusting. I tried this time 5 tsp and three minutes with 16oz water. It is noticeably better. This is stronger in flavor than a normal chrysanthemum and has a similar earthy profile. Again, this is not the same earthy of ripe puerh. It is a completely clean taste. I’m hoping this relaxes me and I can get to sleep.
I steeped this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 5 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.
