drank Iron Buddha by Lipton
2009 tasting notes

I have a perpetual wrestling match with this one. I’ve finally figured out the prime timing — about 2 minutes, definitely less than 2 1/2. Now if I can just find the confounded temperature sweet spot. Cold brew doesn’t work; anything hotter than tap water seems to make it bitter.

I want this one to work; it’s got potential and it’s a Cheapster Steepster. But I’ve blown through nearly a third of the little box and not gotten a cup right—at least to my taste buds.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
