I’ve been thinking that this might be a nice tea to try iced. Has anyone tried icing oolongs? Usually it’s just black, green or fruit teas I’ve heard people mention.

I’ve had some oolongs iced – though typically just later steeps 3rd+ where the leaves had life but I didn’t so I brewed some up then stuck in the fridge. Haven’t tried a wuyi though, mostly greener ones. They have tended to be pretty good though most don’t really have much flavor until they get closer to room temperature and then it is a more one-dimensional floral/sweet (but nice nonetheless). Then again, haven’t tried a wuyi so I’d be interested in seeing how it goes if you decide to do it!

We ice down our favorite health-food store cheapie oolong in the summer; I think the peach flavor will be nice chilled.

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!)
