it'll taste like **** . it won't be hot enough, and no one likes cold tea.

Well, in our history class our teacher has the idea that we should all write out a set of 4 questions each, he will then look at these questions and change words, or similar things and use them as a test (He only picks a handful however)

We thought we were being hillarious, since it talked about a Swiss battle between two groups of Swiss mercenaries, before the battle however they were kind enough to share soup with one another, so we all coordinated and wrote the question "What was the soup made from Knorr, or Maggi" (Two suppliers of modern day seasonings which are very popular in Switzerland/Germany and so on) which didn't exist at that time. He, being one of the greatest history teachers ever, decided to put it in as a bonus question. The look on peoples faces was a true spectacle.

yay!!! time for me to post about tea! i love tea =D anyway, no tea should be steeped in boiling water (at sea level, 212F, 100C to our friends elsewhere), it will "burn" the tea and cause it to taste bitter. now i dont wanna do the math for this so ill just assume that everyone else's is correct in that water will boil around 71-75ish C (159.8-167F). Now tea steep temperatures are different per tea, with the "softer" teas requiring a lower temp. The tea with the lowest steep temp (that i use anyway) would be white tea with any kind of fruit in it. steep temperature will be around 175-180F (79.4-82.2C) for 1-2 minutes or until you decide that particular tea is done steeping. Now if you steep for the same amount of time at a lower temperature, you will experience different tastes depending on the tea. Flavored teas will still exhibit the "flavor" added, but will not have as strong of a tea base to back it up; Fruit will act the same. If using 100% tea, with no added flavors at all actually few teas are like this, many select teas from a local brewer will have some sort of flavor added to the tea, be it a powdered flavor that is coating the tea, or a mix of different herbs, flowers, fruits, etc. that are ground and will easily dissolve into the water then the tea will taste, as most would expect, watery. This watery flavor can be made stronger by increasing steep time, but again it will "burn" the tea and cause a bitter flavor. So, to answer the question, the tea will mostly likely not taste as well as it could at sea level, but with a little knowledge about tea, the climber could probably make himself a decent cup. =] cheers

The tea would taste bad because, as water boils at a lower temperature at high altitudes, he'd have to make his tea using cold water and as every brit should know, not even Clegg would drink cold tea

The essence of this question is that water boils at lower temperatures when pressure is low (pressure is lower, higher in the atmosphere), I have no idea what this taste thing is about, probably because water boils at lower temperature, and therefore tea can't be made well when the water is at this lower (than usual) temperature.Or maybe he has altitude sickness and his taste buds are screwed up.
This is a valid engineering question, as engineers must think of everything when they make stuff, even seemingly trivial things.

Maybe since he's really cold, it'll **** up his taste buds trying to save energy or something and he won't be able to taste the tea as well?
