One day with this machine and I am so glad I splurged. I am a beginner and this helps me make sense of adjustments I need to make when brewing.

I doubled the tea per cup to 2 tsp. The shop recommended 1.5 minutes, but I found that weak. I infused at 3, 3.5 and 4 and found this to be better. Nice tea to drink whle studying all day

Profile

Bio

I am very new to tea. I began moving away from coffee because it was wrecking my nerves, but also becoming “necessary” to navigate a full life of work and grad school. I switched to Yerba mate and now am moving to strictly tea. I have found I like black tea in the morning and green or oolong the rest of the day. I’m going to try as many as I can in hopes of finding affordable everyday teas and some standouts for all day writing sessions on on the weekends.
