Some travel days are longer than others, and I have grown weary wondering through the Denver airport looking for a decent cup of tea. There used to be a self serve hot water tap at one of the sandwich places and I would sneak in there to steal some water (and sometimes buy a sandwich).
But that is now gone and I have decided I will try an immersion heater in my metal go cup. I am setting a rather low bar, as these metal coils you put in water won’t boil it, but hopefully it will get warm enough for a decent cup. If you have used one of these with success and want to give me a recommendation, I am all ears :)
Ah, yes, the tea. I thought I might include a tea note about how underwhelmed I was with the Organic Black tea (it is Assam in the fine print) that I steeped for 5 minutes in about 14 oz of water. I was worried about it getting too strong and bitter, but I probable could have steeped it a bit longer. It was a large pyramid bag, but I typically like more leaf to my water ratio. It was not bitter, and had mild malty and astringent note. I did manage to sip it all down, but I’m not sure I’d try it again unless I was really thirsty for black tea.
