Bio

I gave up alcohol in 2013. When my taste buds came back I discovered tea.

Scores

25+ Not for me but may be for some. I might bear it on some days.
0+ Nope.

Brewing
I was determined not to let the kit take over the taste when I started. So I brew gongfu concentrations and temperatures but in a pyrex measuring jug, from a household kettle, through a kitchen sieve. It works. Kit is nice, but not necessary. Good tea is.
