I’m using this as my “work” tea today instead of Sencha Overture, which is my go-to tea for its predictability and ease of use.
The mug is different. The water temperature is uncontrolled (it comes from a dispenser) and therefore probably different. The result is a much more coppery, light red liquor and a much more pronounced flavor. I’m just at a loss to explain whether I like it more or less.
I may have to go home tonight and brew a cup just to see if I can replicate it.
