Wondering About Water?

Her main question, “Regardless of the steeping temperature, does boiling the water affect the taste of the infusion?” Despite all the hype to the contrary, Victoria’s blind taste tests found that boiling the water before letting it cool to steeping temperature did not alter the flavor negatively. In fact, in some cases (if it was hard water), it made the tea even better. What was important was steeping the tea at the recommended temperature.
