Chamomile and Early Gray is all I've got I did however buy one of these fellers for instant tea. One of the better purchases I made.
I quite like the tartness of pomegranate tea
>>815 What is that thing and how hoes it work?
>>821 It's a water cooler / water heater combo. You can get the tubes version if you got a connection somewhere, or the 5-gallon-goes-in-the-bottom-door version.

>>815 >instant tea That defeats the whole purpose. Goddamn burgers mainstreaming and ruining everything.

Picked up one of these bad boys. Boils water quickly and can hold it all day. Perfect for tea, instant coffee, hot chocolate, you name it. Some models will "flake" plastic down from the top with time, which is a problem, but you can work around it or replace it. Otherwise it works perfectly. IN general I would recommend Zojirushi for appliances like this. Their stuff is high quality, they vacuum seal whatever they can, and the electronics work. Their rice cookers are also excellent. Most commercial rice cookers are Zojirushi, so if you want restaurant style white rice you can't go wrong.
They always say that the temperature of the water makes a difference depending on the tea, but is it noticeable to the average person? Or would I only notice with a side-by-side comparison? I've also taken on the practice of washing my jasmine tea leaves, i.e. pouring the boiling water on the leaves, pouring out that liquid, and then actual steeping. It's supposed to get rid of bitterness, but I feel like it's just ridiculousness on my part. Maybe it works for certain teas, but again, would I actually notice a difference? One day I'll trial through my questions. For now, I'm trying to finish up some blueberry tea I got gifted. >>825 Thank you for the tips, anon. When my kettle goes, I'll be sure to check out Zojirushi.

>>824 >instant tea I completely forgot that was a thing anon. I meant instant as in 'quick' not that powdered abomination.
>>827 You'll notice a great difference with temperature. If you make a good green tea with 70-80C(even 45-50C for very good high grade), it's floral, maybe a bit grassy, umami. Try it with 100C and you get a bitter mess you can barely choke down. Washing is only necessary for tea that comes compressed or tightly rolled, cakes or such.

Pretty much what I've heard when it comes to matcha. I can see it making sense, but I guess I want to prove it to myself. But if you tell me you've noticed this, I can believe it. Thank you! >Washing is only necessary for tea that comes compressed or tightly rolled, cakes or such. I've been to a tea house which washes the leaves from specific types of tea (I believe their Chinese selection). They are loose, however. Doing some research, it seems that old tea can have excess amounts of fluorine, so maybe that is why?
drink tea faggots
>>878 Had a milk Assam tea the other day. Should probably make another one to go with some cookies I'm baking.
