I upped the steeping time by a minute and I can taste that the fruit flavour is stronger – though it’s still more of an orange-strawberry flavour than just straight-up strawberry. However, there’s also a note of bitterness creeping in – not surprising since 4 minutes is a lot even for a hardy green tea. Maybe I’ll reduce the water temperature next time.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
