I brewed two cups of Irish Breakfast this morning; the tea wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Which leads me to my question: Does the temperature of the water affect flavor? (I.e. not boiling and boiling) Also, does measurement of the leaf make any significant difference? I have been using a standard kitchen teaspoon instead of a true measuring teaspoon. I feel like my leaves did not unfurl and expand much, but I did use microwaved water. (I am in a dorm; I purchased a kettle, but I have not recieved it yet.) I hate my microwave -- hot means hot, not lukewarm! Even the Earl Grey I made yesterday was a tad off. Suggestions or comments, anyone? For information, both teas are samples from Adagio.
