Made this as an iced tea. Not quite an iced tea though. Because I found the cold brew to be very watery, I brewed this one double strength hot, for 10 min. Then just put in the fridge, instead of pouring it over ice. This one looked better, the colour was darker and more opaque than when cold brewed. The liquor felt much thicker in my mouth. But unfortunately the taste was the same. Mostly tasted like coconut water. There was a light pineapple taste and was slightly sweeter than the cold brew.
For this tea, in my opinion, it was best hot, then iced, and in last place was the cold brew.

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.
