I have made and bottled this stuff to take to class with me for the last three days. It’s a hearty tea, somewhere between a Ceylon and Assam in body. It’s a bit astringent, but the taste is lively and slightly smoky.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec
Cofftea

I like it. My New Year’s resolution is to always have iced tea premade in the fridge so I don’t drink just plain water. By the time I’m dying of thirst and a hot beverage won’t work, I don’t want to wait to take a drink til I make tea so I end up drinking plain water.

Actually, I made this hot, put it in an insulated bottle, and took it with me. I only live 10 minutes away from the college, so it stays plenty warm by the time I drive there, park, and walk to the building. It keeps me warm in the drafty class rooms and awake during boring lectures. :-P

But, I can imagine this would be mighty tasty iced. It’s been so cold here, I haven’t even thought about making iced tea.

lol ok your verbiage got me. I normally refer to bottled as iced and in a thermos as hot. Thanks for clarifying:)

I have to drink some… I take meds and hot tea makes them dissolve instantly and that’s just nasty lol. And when I get really thirsty, hot beverages don’t cut it. In spite of the weather, this convo made me try cold matcha for the 1st time:)
