Again, not really but kind of a tea tasting note.
I wanted to make some iced coffee. My usual is to use day old coffee, add milk, sweetener and ice, sometimes blender it will some kind of mocha or chocolate mix.
I decided to brew the coffee with some lapsang tea – really wasn’t my idea, I did see this somewhere but can’t remember where or when. I made 8 cups, used 4 scoops coarsely ground Starbucks blonde veranda blend and just 1 tsp of the lapsang – I didn’t want it to be too strong.
It turned out ok. You can definitely taste the smokey flavour. But cold, it does make the coffee quite dry, slightly bitter. It really tastes like smokey campfire coffee to me. It is almost like the smoke just sits on top of the coffee. First I taste the smoke, then I taste the coffee, it is not blending too well. I am thinking this one might have been better had I used a bolder coffee. This one is definitely better hot than cold. Cold campfire is just not for me I guess.
