Happy New Year!
I went to the Best Tea House today before the New Year’s festivities. Among the things we tried was using the different water with an older tea (1980s). The result was astounding…. whereas the filtered tap water is a bit thin, bland, and boring, the tap water infused with mineral water was nice, aromatic, and thick. The difference was night and day. This tea was tasted at the request of somebody who bought a piece of this cake from the BTH a few months ago (he wanted to try the difference between what he has and what the BTH is offering right now) and let’s just say he was impressed with the results and decided to try it out at home.
I’d encourage everyone of you to go try out different kinds of water for your teas, and try to figure out what’s best for what kind of tea. Otherwise…. you might not be brewing the teas to its full potential. After all, it’s the only other ingredient in the making of the drink.
