Thank you for posting this! I had an uncle who would never drink tea brewed properly. He always poured boiling water into a cup and then sunk a teabag in it. I tried to tell him to pour the water over the bag and he said, nope - it will float. He didn't understand about aerating the tea. I hope more people try this method and then they, too, will start loving tea. I use a cobalt porcelain pot to brew my tea and prefer china cups but still love my huge mugs! Thanks BecR! ;)
Thanks for your helpful insights! I'll try some of these later today.
