Interesting. I've recently been (re)discovering tea. Assam Harmony and Keemun Encore are the only black teas I dislike from the dozen or more samples I've ordered. (I've not tried Assam Melody.)
Yes, I've played with the steeping. Great colour, lovely sweet aroma, but kind of bland taste and a peppery, astringent aftertaste that I find unpleasant.
Go figure ... ;7) .
