This one smelled quite strong dry, so I was a bit wary to steep it up, but it turned out quite nicely. It’s a bit like lemonade with a hint of hibiscus.

It brewed up a medium pink, but I still expected a mouthful of tart hibiscus, but it was not be. The hibiscus is very light. I’m enjoying it hot, but I have a feeling it will be even better cold brewed.

This one is actually labelled as a ‘sun tea’. Perhaps that means I should brew it in the sun?

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

Cold brewing is a more hygienic way of sun brewing… at least that’s what I’ve been reading lately when I was looking into cold brewing!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
