Okay, so I cold steeped this overnight and I HAVE to up the rating because this is a whole other monster! A delicious monster!

The strawberry has come out to plaaay! Not only that, but with an intense rich strawberry-ness with just a hint of rose and a chocolate/tea base. It’s like a fancy iced tea – what bottled iced tea should be. I am over the top happy with this discovery, and if anyone else has a potpourri problem with flowery teas (I hear ya Faith!) , try this. Holy mama. Deeelish!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Ooh, I’ll have to try this cold-brewed. Sounds great.

Mélissa

Nice, now I have to try this.

Indigobloom

Mmmm sounds like one tea I might really enjoy cold!!

Faith

Oh, I never thought of that! In the winter the thought of cold tea never really enters my brain, thanks for the suggestion!

DaisyChubb

Oh do try!
I will usually at least 4 cups of hot tea a day, but when I need something thirst quenching, I’ve been trying to cold brew so I have a refreshing drink I don’t have to pay money for. So far this is the best experiment!!

Kittenna

Silly question – how do you cold brew a tea? Do you just put the teaball in a cup of cold water and leave it in the fridge for x number of hours?

DaisyChubb

Not a silly question at all!
to be honest, I’ve never cold brewed with a tea ball, just because I’m scared of leaving a metal ball in the water for that long – but it’s probably silly and you could probably do it! Yep, my preferred method is to just stick some tea in a bottle or jug and leave it over night, but you can get a good flavour with just a couple hours of cold brewing too. Hope that helped :)

Kittenna

Definitely helps! Do you put the same amount of dry leaf in as you would for a hot cup? I think I’ll try this tonight :D

DaisyChubb

yep I sure do! Let me know how it turns out!

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
