Sil was drinking this and made a comment on icing it. I have tried it hot and cold brewed but have never actually tried it iced. I did try it using a cold drip method and that did not turn out very well.

I brewed 6 tsp in 2 cups water. Then filled the 2 quart pitcher with ice and let it melt. The tea turned out a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles slime green colour. The tea tastes strongly of sweet grassy green tea. There are light notes of strawberry and slight candy like sweetness underneath the green tea. The sweet grass flavour reminds me of summer very much. I feel like I don’t actually taste anything while the tea is in my mouth. Just a light green tea taste. Then the real taste kicks in after I swallow. This one is actually quite nice iced. It is better iced than cold brewed.

Thanks Sil, for reminding me how to brew up my own teas. He he.

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.
