Thanks for the warning, EvenOdd. I just brewed a cup of it to satisfaction. It's not my cup of tea
, but it's ok for now. I put 1/2 tsp of the L.S. in my infuser, put it and a black tea bag in my cup, and poured the boiling water on it. I immediately took out the L.S. (not the bag, though) and tasted it. I couldn't taste the L.S. yet, so i dipped it in the water four times (like touching the water four times). I did this three times total. The entire process lasted 1 minute. I think i'll stick to non-smoky teas and donate the L.S. to someone else.
