So I guess I deserve this for brewing five cups of tea simultaneously…. set the timer for 3 minutes, and took out a tea ball right when it went off….. but it was not the right cup. I took out the re-steeping banana oolong teaball, not this one. I should mention that the only reason I’m brewing so much is because my boyfriend is visiting and since I’m trying to get him to drink tea, letting him sample whatever he wants from my cupboard is the way to go :) So tonight it’s re-steeps of Banana Oolong (#3), Alpine Punch (#3), Pom Power (#2), and first steepings of Daydreamer and Paradise Found. Plus something else later, most likely.
Anyhow, I digress. In spite of the MASSIVE oversteeping, I think I may not have ruined this tea! The brewed liquid smells fruity and tasty, and I am actually concerned that the tea tastes too weak, instead of oversteeped, and there’s no bitterness. I find this odd, given that it’s a sencha??? Sencha Pear oversteeped for me in a heartbeat.
Anyways, I’ll definitely have to try this one again done properly, but for now I’m kind of excited :)
