1690 tasting notes

It’s taken most of the box of these inexpensive little bags to accept the fact that you let the water get cool to tepid, you drag the bag leisurely through the water 6, definitely no more than 8 times, and that’s it. STOP. Otherwise it gets a bitter barb at the end of the sip.

Self-control in steeping tea. There’s a concept I need to practice…

Self-control and tea? What’s that? That sounds like quite the process.

I tend to ruin teas you have to fuss with; I am a heavy-handed steeper.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
