@AlexW Very timely post, indeed. It also made me realize I was missing your blog in my RSS feeds, which I’ve now rectified.
@ray I'll be a happy tea drinker if I can persuade you to experiment, Ray, and end up making you a tea convert. I'm sure you'll enjoy your cuppa better for just taking a minute extra to watch the water. 😀
@ray Like burning a stake, or over heating any food item, rapidly boiled water damages quality tea leaves and can release a bitter taste (tannins). And besides, my gran told me, never, never boil your water and we all know, granny is always right! 😜
