Hello! I have been drinking Lipton caffine free green tea for a few years, and I decided to delve into the world of loose green tea. Well, I'm having my first cup now, and it is Gunpowder. I must say, it tastes quite smokey, and very simliar to regular Teatley tea. I also purchased some Green Peace, and some Young Hyson. Has anyone ever heard of these, or tried them? How much tea should I be brewing for a single mug?
Also, I purchased a cotton tea straining pouch. Any other methods of brewing the leaves that is easy and inexpensive? How about the mesh balls?
Thanks a lot for any input!
