A pinch of table salt will reduce bitterness. I like mine dark to very dark in color after steeping. More the color of dark coffee than of tea. A heaping teaspoon of root chunks will produce several cups even a quart of tea easily. one may brew a mug then refill the mug and steep again but longer then brew overnight. to extract a third mug for maximum value and in my case maximum enjoyment with a lot of sugar, very smooth.
