I am so confused!
I brew this tea at home, and I can’t get the color or flavor I want, even though I’m using all my fancy tea items, like my pot, and my precise zojirushi, and my good cups. Thinking this tea is nothing but dust, I take it to work.
Work, where the water comes out of an Arrowhead machine, where the brewing apparatus that I have is a plastic and metal travel mug with brewing basket. So I drank this tea all yesterday, and didn’t clean out the brewing basket. I come back into work this morning, look at the leaves and rebrew them, thinking I’ll get a weak tea. But no! Still a pretty strong tea. The color and flavor is exactly what I want.
This tea, definitely for work, but not for home. It doesn’t want fancy. It wants bare bones.
