The weather is getting hot these day so I dug out my tea and made a pitcher of iced tea. Steeped according to the directions it’s nice and refreshing although I do wish there was a bit more black currant/berry flavour. The base is smooth and not bitter, which is a problem I’ve noticed with some iced tea.

Because I’m Canadian I like my iced tea sweet, although the commercially available bottled and powdered iced teas are way too sugary, so one plus of making my own is that I can control the amount of sweetener (in this case agave nectar) that I add.

This one sounds good, I love Harney & Sons. I really wanted to send you a PM after reading that you study Natural Resources because that’s what I’m studying as well and I don’t know anybody else who is! (short of a few fellow online students)
I am focusing on Forest science because I love trees more than anything. Do you have a specific area of interest as well?

I bought this today and am trying it now. Maybe I prepped it wrong? Holy moly is it bitter. Not much berry flavour, blech. I think I am going to dump it. How sad!

Profile

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
