    A rolling boil according to The Fujian Tea Marketing Company.

    Water boils at lower temperatures at higher altitudes. I wonder if tea snobs take that into account.

    Come on you guys; water boils at 100 C, and freezes at 0 C.

    Ryan, actually it depends on the air pressure.

    Yes, my wife DOES take that into account.

    The numbers you quote are at normal atmospheric pressure or about sea level. They change with pressure so if you are at 10,000 feet water will boil at less than 100 C.

    Air pressure varies with elevation and also changes in weather.

    I guess I just don’t have a discerning palette of a connoisseur.

    Atmospheric pressure has to be taken into consideration when baking, as well. My grandmother used to bake both in Iowa and well up in the Colorado mountains (in the summers), in the latter case using a wood stove, so she was an expert.
