I made the last of this as a cold brew. It turned out ok. Something about the lemongrass is just hitting me the wrong way. It tastes very lemon peppery to me as a cold brew. I feel like I would like this tea if there was no lemongrass in it. It is not bad but I thought I would love this iced when in fact I prefer it hot. Guess you never know until you try :)

I hated this cold-brewed. Blech! Still don’t know what I did wrong!

I’m thinking its just not meant to be cold brewed. But I wonder if it would be better brewed hot, then iced.

Very possible! DT doesn’t ever recommend cold-brewing, to my knowledge, just brewing extra strong an pouring over ice.

Lala

Thats good to know.

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.
