Pinched this one in the fridge with a little baking soda.(So glad you taught me that trick, fellow Steepsters!) Truthfully, I may have overdone it a little bit—the idea is not to turn it into baking soda water, but to take the acidic edge off. But there is a noticeable difference in the sharpness/brassiness of this cheapie tea. And playing alchemist is just fun.

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.
