Tried this one chilled without having a cup hot first, but it makes a good plain summer cooler… poured into glass bottles, cooled, straight into the fridge. I’m never very precise with my water temps, but I must have accidentally hit the butter zone on this one—no bitterness or strong veggie taste at all.

(Sorry, wombatgirl … this does deserve a limerick, but a have a post-lousy-night’s-sleep headache that’s even making full sentences a stretch. Maybe next steep.)

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.
