Had this today cold brewed with a pinch of brown sugar. I think I actually like it best iced, since it brings out the soda-y vibe the most. It’s also slightly creamy this way, and the earthy flavors of the guranse pop. Sooo good!

I was wondering how jaggery would taste with this (and if it would dissolve easily).

I actually have some jaggery, I didn’t think of trying them together but I think I’ll put some in next time I make a cup!

Pardon my un-informedness … jaggery?

Alphakitty

It’s a kind of unrefined cane sugar, very tasty!

gmathis

Thanks. We have one natural food store that might possibly carry it. Maybe. (Welcome to the Midwest ;)

One of the nice things about NYC is that if an ingredient exists, you can probably find it here XD I’m spoiled!

An Indian grocery store should have jaggery.

Bonnie

On the West Coast it’s Mexican Panela or Panocha which is Pure Cane Sugar

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
