Default Teatime in Space

"How different is teatime in orbit? Astronaut Don Pettit showed us in 2003
when he filmed himself taking tea onboard the International Space Station
(ISS). Instead of sipping from a cup, Pettit used chopsticks to pluck
grape-sized blobs of tea from mid-air, grinning each time he popped one in
his mouth."

For the rest:

The whole idea of low pressure or vacuum steeping is very interesting.

You could extract tea 'essence' in a very low temperature condition.
Might help to retain those intangibles and volatiles that heat might
well be destroying and disassembling.
