Tried it at 185F for two minutes since the Zojirushi was cooling down from a 205 steep, but I didn’t think it was much different than the brew I did a few days ago. Not bad, but not worth the additional expense though Silk Road calls it “competition grade”. Maybe that grade is wasted on my uneducated palate? I still have a lot of this tea left so maybe will try a cooler than 175F steep and see how that goes.

185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Transitioning from military and spending the afternoons shuttling the kids and drinking tea…mostly Japanese and Chinese green/oolong and Taiwanese oolong. Occasionally imbibing in a Teavana herbal blend at night.

My cupboard is completely up to date. Currently, I am drinking lots of tea from Seven Cups and Den’s.
