I’m easily confused. Especially when two conflicting rules butt up against each other. So blends of black and green tea definitely confuse me. Do I brew at high temps or low? Risk scalding the green to get the black to brew up fully? Or should you brew at the low temperature and risk a weak cuppa?

This meant playing with the parameters and seeing what worked best. The lower temperature brew resulted in a more fruity/floral brew while the higher temperature brought out the tea more. Both were flavorful cups that had some lovely fruity overtones. My favorite was the lower temperature brew. It had more floral and fruit notes and was definitely NOT a weak cup. Either way, it was a lovely, light brown cup that was enjoyable to drink.

Nice, flavorful, and fruity. Yum.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
