Yippee, glad you tried it.
The tea should also be stirred occasionally to change the tea that is in contact with pot, I do it based on smell and changes to it, as the smell is mostly coming from that layer. sometimes that means every few minutes, sometimes it means a half hour or so.
You may need to repeat the roasting in a week or two for it to 'stick', that has been my experience with really bad cases.
