Why does the taste of tea change after watering it down after it's ready for drinking?
If you use 100% of water to make a cup of tea and then add 50% more water, the taste is not the same as when you make a cup of tea with 150% of water from the start. Why does this happen?
It doesn't happen to granulated coffee, but it does happen with bagged or free-leaf teas. I'm not a big fan of ground coffee, so I can't say anything about it.
I also know that nobody recommends watering ready tea down, but I haven't heard why yet. What causes the change of taste?
