So I was in a fancy grocery store earlier today and for some reason started looking at the teas. I know that I don’t need to buy any more tea, and I know that if I did need to buy tea, there are better places to get it than a grocery store, even (especially?) a fancy one.
But despite this, I walked out with a box of Revolution White Tangerine tea.
The box suggests 3-5 minutes at “just under boiling,” which seems a bit aggressive for white tea. So I compromised and did 80°C for 3 minutes. I think this is about right: there is just the tiniest hint of bitterness which would probably get to be a problem if I’d left it steeping much longer.
It’s a decent white tea. I can barely taste the tangerine, though. I wonder if adding some sugar would bring the tangerine out? I will try doing so next time.
