I was drinking this the other night, had about 3 steeps worth, took the used leaves and added 2 cups of cold water and left it sitting on the counter overnight. Was having a discussion about cold steeping on counter vs in fridge. I usually cold steep in the fridge, but was trying this on the counter. In the morning, I drained off the leaves and put the tea in the fridge. Promptly forgot about it, until tonight.
Now I’m trying it. I’m not sure if:
A> I don’t like cold steeped oolong.
B> I shouldn’t have left it in the fridge for 2 days before drinking.
C> It didn’t work as well on the counter as it does in the fridge.
D> The leave didn’t have enough flavor left in them to cold steep.
I can’t even begin to wrap my head around what’s wrong with this, but I don’t like it. Memo to self. Don’t do this again.
