OMG I HAVE A VARIABLE TEMPERATURE KETTLE WOOOO!!! Thanks, Nxtdoor!
Now that’s out of the way, I brewed this one up at 158C (as per my kettle! Eee!!), and it’s WAY nicer. Not bitter at all. The strawberry flavour is still super mild to me, but that could be due to the cold. Still not a super fan, but that’s because I’m not in love with most green teas.
So. Brewing at the proper temperature makes tea nicer. It’s also a LOT easier to brew tea at the proper temperature when you have a kettle that takes care of that issue for you.
It’s even on sale! Just make sure you CALL your local store and get them to put it on hold for you! My local store didn’t have it, so I called another and went there only to get the last one on the shelf! They said they had NINE.
