Making another attempt at this tea. This time I lowered it to 4 tsp of leaf and it was improved over using 5 tsp of leaf. It still has a flavor I am at a loss to describe. Earthy, but not in the way of ripe puerh, not in a dirty sense and certainly not in a fishy sense. In the sense that you are drinking something that is more of the earth than other teas. It is fairly tasty as herbal teas go. I’m going to try resteeping the leaves and see how a second steeping is. Snow Chrysanthemum is many times stronger than Chrysanthemum without a doubt. With Chrysanthemum I routinely use twice as much tea and it comes out good. I tried more tea with this it was terrible.
I steeped this one time with 4 tsp leaf and boiling water in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper for 3 min.
