We recommend a teaspoon per cup and a steeping time of five minutes. The tea is relatively fine, that is, it is more like small crumbs from a recognizable leaves. In my paper filters consistency is relatively unimportant, but similar to a tea infuser could the tea partly somewhat be too fine, that is, you have to fish a few crumbs from the beverage in circumstances.
Dry it smells very aromatic, brewed it no longer smells as strong (and for my taste also not so good). The finished beverage has a dark, reddish-brown color.
The taste I find the blacks Friesen not bad. He is very strong and aromatic, but has a slightly bitter aftertaste. From Assam tea I did not know the date. I drink black tea with sugar and a dash of milk. Thus it is mild, but does not lose all his bitterness.
