drank Cheeky Lychee by DAVIDsTEA
505 tasting notes

Going to give this one a cold steep and see if the flower-power stops over-powering!!
Join me if you’ve got some Lychee to spare :D

I’ve definitely got plenty to spare, I’m finding it hard to motivate myself to drink this. How do you go about cold steeping?

I use a wide lid container (at work a washed out Lipton Iced tea bottle, at home my david’s iced tea cup) and put in the same amount I would put in for a hot cup, so usually 1 1.5-2 teaspoons since they’re pretty large cups, then I just stick them in the fridge overnight. Some teas are strong enough that they’re ready after a few hours, but overnight is usually a good test.

It really makes the teas taste totally different sometimes (sometimes it fails horrible haha), but I’m going to try some Lychee overnight tonight and report back!

Sometimes (at work haha) I’ll leave it on my desk and watch the tea slowly steep into the room temperature water. It’s really quite neat. Also makes the day go by. I digress!

Let me know if you give it a try! :)

Also ^ I usually cold steep with just teabag teas, but for these instances I use a paper teasac – not sure if it would be bad to put a metal strainer in, but I bet it would work to just throw in the loose leaf and strain it in the morning too!

So no hot water? Just plain, old cold water? Hmmmm intruiging!

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!
