Wow, you started this thread going full anti-tea, but now - true to the nature of your race - you seem, in fact, to be an expert on it.

What a trickster.


I am just a very courteous person who adapts their conversation to suit their companion, so that my conversation companion will feel comfortable and engaged with me..

You can know about something without necessarily liking it. I know a bit about Portugal but I don't like Portugal (I am merely indifferent).

OR

shut up

Nobody uses boiling water. Even with kettles turning off after the boiling point, pouring reduces the temp, and going into a teapot or cup reduces it further.

Actually boiling tea leaves would mean that you've been putting tea leaves, or a tea bag in a kettle and raising the temp to boiling. That would be weird.

Literally nobody I know has ever added genuinely boiling hot water to tea. Even simmering would be bizarre.


The Brits used to say "pot to kettle, not kettle to pot" - so that the water hadn't had time to cool while you were taking the kettle to the pot. And the reason for "warming the pot" is so that the water doesn't cool down when it hits the cold pot before it's started on the leaves.

In Kenya, they make tea by adding the leaves, milk and sugar to a pot and then heating it all up. A huge shame - Kenyan tea is some of the best in the world.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

Boiling? I thought the water had to be just under that of a rolling boil.
And I'm right.
White Tea 160F
Geeen Tea 150-180F
Oolong Tea 190-200F
Black Tea 200-212F
With 212F being boiling.
