It is methodical, like the steps to a dance. Do I sound a little loopy? I hope not, just trying to explain that tea is like mental exersize to me...anyone else?
Now to my question I suppose! I've read all about water types, and temperatures to steep etc...But it seems no matter how careful I am I taste bitterness? Or sometimes I get the cup of colored (tasteless) hot water?
Please recommend teas that are sweet without sweetener, and fruity tasting...I think I like those best. I do not like the harsh taste of black teas.
