Platonic Ideal of Iced Tea. Seriously, seriously good. The very finest of nothing fancy, straightforward, black iced tea. I followed the directions (1 pouch steeped in 2 cups water for 15 minutes, then add 6 more cups of water, squeeze and remove bag) and I have the elusive (for me) perfectly clear wonderful iced tea of legend!!!!!!!!

(Being who I am, I couldn’t help but add orange slices and a little raw sugar!)

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
