I recently had a cup of adagio's valentines tea and steeped for 5 minutes but for some reason I't had a weird twang or bitter taste I am wondering if I oversteeped I't. What does everyone reccomend on how much time to steep this?
Should I cut down on my steeping time? Please help.
These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

I use two teaspoons of leaf, boiling water, 12oz mug for 5 minutes, but add a splash of vanilla almond milk to it to bring out the flavors a little better. Most of the other flavored teas that I drink without adding milk get steeped for about 3 minutes. I would suggest to try 3 minutes, or if that is not to your liking, see if 4 minutes works better. If neither of those work well, add a splash of milk and/or a sprinkle of sugar.
