Made the last of my sample as a cold brew. Not sure how long it brewed for because I didn’t pay attention. But I put it in this morning and am now drinking it before supper.

It is definitely very much Cuba Libre as a cold brew. I can totally taste cola and rum. I am getting a very slight lime. It could have used a tiny bit of sweetener but I wasn’t too interested in getting out of my chair. There is a bit of a black tea aftertaste. This one totally reminds me of laying out on the beach in the Caribbean sun.

Long live Summer!

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.
