drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
558 tasting notes

Made a gallon of this iced using the hot brew method:1TBSP to 16oz hot water and then chilled it overnight. I’ve been trying to “use up” this tea, as it was the first I bought, and I’ve found much better teas I enjoy and still have 4oz to work thorugh.

This makes a smoother iced tea than I remember. I love the sweet bergamot flavor from the “creme”. I will have to try this with a plain Earl to see how it compares.

Only 1TB/gal steeped in 16z water then 112oz cold water added? Or 1TB/16oz for a total of 8TB?

2nd one: 8TB to 1 Gallon, but I used my perfect tea maker that is 16oz so it was 1TB/16oz and then I’d empty it and start over. I think I need to cave and get the larger iced tea size Perfect Tea maker or Bodum’s Iced tea pitcher that Rishi and others seem to carry.

Cofftea

Meghann M- quicker easier solution would be all 8TB steeped in 16oz then adding 112oz cold water. Then you can have a gallon ready in the same amount of time it’d take to make a cup:)

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
