the tea equation

A tea blog that ain't afraid of no math.

Tea, coffee, beer, wine. Many people simply take them at face value, drinking for taste or from habit. But if you scratch the surface you'll see there is more than meets the eye. What looks like a simple combination of leaf and water becomes much more. Google "Food Science" and you'll get the gist of what we're getting at. Unique to tea is the ability to re-steep the leaves, often more that twice. This comes with a host of factors to consider when aiming to make the perfect cup. Water, temperature, the quantity of leaf, these are but a few of the factors that you must enter into the equation.
