On Tap:

Yesterday, it was Adagio's Chestnut black all day, which I actually prefer brewed with tap water. Filtered water makes it too astringent and bitter...the extra minerals and such in tap water make it naturally sweet and not so drying.

On tap today is Adagio's Yunnan Jig - which ironically, I also prefer with tap water.

Note that these are both brewed in plastic (my triniTea maker), and results are different when brewing in a glass or ceramic pot. Probably the chemicals leaching out of the plastic...

Yes, I still really, really want an automatic tea maker with a *glass* brewing chamber (hint?)...
