REDUX TIME!

Steeped 4 minutes maybe a little less,put in a shallow tsp.

If this gentle steep doesn’t work I’m done I have too many fussy teas this better be amazing or I’m trading it. ( anyone up for trades btw?)

Okay so it is much better, not bitter. Pretty! Underwhelming but when done right it is nice oh wait further I drink the more bitter it gets ( exhausted sigh)

now iced: Same exact thing happens nice then descends into bitterness. … Bye bye Kokomo seems our visits start well then descend into shittiness towards each other.

Not a win for DT change the formula please because this is like a bad ex you keep going to for a good kiss and mediocre to bad sex.

Yeah I said it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 15 sec
Cavocorax

Youch. That sounds awful. I wonder why it’s giving you so much trouble? I thought maybe 200F was too hot for a green, but if you’re icing it, then you’re not burning the leaves. Strange!

Sorry, I did try cold brewing this. Still finicky.

Cavocorax

That sucks. Hopefully you can trade it or do something with it! You’ve put enough effort in!

Yeah I’ll trade it to a person who lives for green tea…it is just not worth it when there are so many teas that do work. I haven’t done a cold steep I just do Icing the normal way : make tea normally then pour over a glass full of ice cubes.or on a larger scale…the icing I did would have mellowed it since I didn’t go double strong still bitter and nah isn’t worth it.
