My son-in-law is from London and he's been drinking tea all his life. He routinely uses two Lipton tea bags per cup of tea.
I tried using 1/8 cup or a little more of Yunnan Jig per pot of tea. I use one of the small white pots that Adagio sells. I think you get about 20 oz. per pot.
This comes out really good tasting. It's so dark I cannot see the bottom of the cup. Hasn't been bitter, either.
Anyone else do this?

I love strong teas especially black tea. My usual dose is about 2 or 3 teaspoons per cup which I steep with boiling water for about 6 to 7 minutes. I really happen to like the flavor of black teas at that strength. It particularly goes well with milk and sugar too. Mostly I drink Assam, English Breakfast and Darjeeling.
