So I got this new tea steeper thing from Teavana. Basically a french press, but without the press part. Just put the “pot” on top of the cup and it pour down (only problem is I can’t see how far it has filled up as it pours).
Anyways, this allows for the tea leaves to expand more versus the tea ball I originally was using and the tea tastes much better. Glad to hear the tip about the more expansion means more flavor, thanks guys :)
