I cold brewed the leaves from yesterday for an iced green tea, but then I wasn’t in the mood for it. I decided to give it to my roses! I filled up the pitcher with even more water then poured the watery tea and leaves into the ground. Roses love tea and tea leaves – they are a good source of nitrogen for the soil.

I do this with leftover coffee too, sometimes straight from the coffee pot (but diluted!). Once the little boy next door stage whispered to his mom, “Look! She’s putting COFFEE in her FLOWERS!” when I was coffee-ing the mums.

Preparation
Iced 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
