Today I made this tea iced. I used 8 tsp in 64 oz. of hot water. I added 1/4 cup white sugar for sweetener. It brewed a dark ruby red liqour. Smelled sweet and fruity. It tastes sweet and fruity, the liquid feels heavy in my mouth. It tastes and feels like I am drinking a fruit juice! I am happy I tried this one iced today. I am going to have to do this again in the summer, considering it is currently a cold winter where I am right now. But as I’m drinking it, I’m dreaming of the beach :)

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
