One of my new purchases from the trip — Your DeKalb Farmer’s Market (which is neither a farmer’s market nor mine but which is in DeKalb, so I guess it’s okay) carries bulk Ceylon Black tea in a variety of flavorings. I picked up Orange and Peach.

During the trip I mug-brewed this one, and this was (unsurprisingly) deeply bitter but (surprisingly) deeply flavorful as well: I would have expected the long steep to cause the tea to override the orange, but it didn’t. In fact, on a more “proper” two minute steep this morning, the orange didn’t really come out enough until I steeped it a second time and added some honey. This is leading me to believe that it may be an excellent iced tea, so I shall have to experiment!
