When teas are fired over three hundred degrees, the Maillard reaction occurs… and what that simply means is that there will be nutty and sweet undertones which will make your life that much better.

Is this the same reaction that causes meats to brown?

That sounds more like it would turn it to ash – Wait, are we talking three hundred celcius or farenheit?

@fcmonroe- Generally speaking, yes it is!

@Jillian- We’re talking about Farenheit! That’d be a hot hot furnace otherwise.

LOL, I figured that was the case, otherwise you’d be steeping tea cinders. ;)
