It’s been driving me crazy lately. Every time I make a cup of tea, no matter how long I steep, the tea tastes horribly bitter!
I think I finally figured out why. My water was too hot!
I boil my tea water using an electric kettle, and boy does the water get hot, I think too hot. Once I stopped the heat at just under a rolling boil, my tea has been tasting so much better.
Yay! Now that the cooler weather is here, I’ve been wanting to make more tea, and especially green tea.
