    Holy cow! My Cousin by marriage fancies himself a tea elitist (aka snob) and NEVER allows the water to boil. He even uses a thermometer to ensure it. He wouldn't be caught dead with boiled water as he says it scalds the tea. Now totally confused..oh well guess I will just have to keep drinking coffee!
    If you're having green or herbal teas it is considered the norm to have it just off the boil, so as to not make it bitter. As for 'normal' tea, boiling water is preferred You don't scald it like you do with coffee

    I learnt the hard way as well, now I hardly ever to read anything out to Chris









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
