Someone I know told me the inventors will be on one of those reality shows and you have to call in and vote for the people to win for their invention. American Inventor on Wed night July 25th, on ABC at 9pm (EST). Here is a "You Tube" link to their invention for making perfect tea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9HUvkPNlUE From: homeroast-admin [mailto:homeroast-admin] On Behalf Of Public Sent: Monday, July 23, 2007 11:29 AM To: homeroast Subject: RE: +I know....blasphemy....Tea!

Hi ~ Due to my daughters interest, I have recently been experimenting with the wide world of Tea. No, it will never come close to my enjoyment and satisfaction of roasting and brewing (or pulling shots) of coffee, but it's an interesting diversion. I was wondering if anyone out there could give me some basic "Tea Info" (how much to use when brewing, brewing temps, good teas to try....real basic stuff) as well as if there is a "Sweet Maria's" in the tea world.

If I remember correctly, that American Inventors episode aired about two weeks ago on network TV. It may sound silly, but the inventors hit three things right on the head with their tea brewer mod for coffee pots: 1. Everybody brews tea with boiling water, and that's just VVRONG, UURONG, VVRONG! VVay, Way too hot. 2. People love the convenience of premeasured teabags. The paper bags tend to compact the tea and prevent the free infusion of hot water with the tea leaves. Big difference in flavor if you brew it loose leaf in a press. 3. The green teas I've gotten thus far, along with the white Jasmine tea have been nearly sweet. But they could find a definite hatred in your palate and become bitter if you let them brew too long. (You get a brewing potpourri of flavors from teabags and compacted tea leaves- depending on the compaction, some brew more than others) I really don't think I could taste the staples if they were used, but some can. I will say that I can taste the miasma trapped in the paper pores. It's filter paper, and some flotsam and jetsam has been along for the ride almost since Genesis. Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
