Rinsing Adagio Tea?

Postby christopherscott2112 » Nov 16th, '11, 22:52

I brew tea in the adagio ingenuiTea. That being said, is there any reason for me to rinse tea leaves when I brew. I am not very knowledgeable about rinsing...

And if so, should I rinse all teas? What teas specifically? How exactly would I rinse with the ingenuiTea?

Thanks,
Chris :wink:

if you feel like your tea is dirty rinse it

though really I can not think of a simple way to do this with your brewing device
If you really wanted I guess you could get one of those big tea balls, pour hot water over it in a separate cup, then transfer the leaves to your brewer, or you could just use a bowl and fork, then transfer to brewer

Puerh for me is a tea I do rinse every time I drink. Certain balled oolongs and blacks too (but this more depends on the tea, how clean and how deep the flavours have been locked in with the processing). Or if you really enjoy aromatics then the rinse is a good part of that experience.

If you decide to rinse keep it very short flash in/out-8 secs max.

Seconded.

I'm not a fan of rinsing teas. In all my years I've only done it once and that was because the person I was sharing it with requested it. Never gotten ill from it either.

Rinsing it does drain out some the caffeine of it though.
Or so I was told.

If you drink the rinse, is it really a rinse? Isn't it a short first steep? :)
