This is the tea I keep around to dye textiles, BUT I used 4 of these teabags along with 2 tablespoons of my Earl Grey Melange to make some cold brewed iced tea. It was very good!! The addition of the finer tea plus the cold brew method feature this tea to its best advantage (to be honest, I’ve never had it hot, so for all I know it makes a great cup of hot tea! Feel free to ignore me!!). I will certainly use this again to add a little filler to my iced tea!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

It’s a tea! It’s a textile dye! But wait, there’s more! It’s a ginsu knife!

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
