I hot brewed more of this last night for iced tea today… and this morning, my package from Amazon arrived, so tonight I’ll cold-brew one of Frank’s new teas (probably go with the rainbow sherbet again since that’s the only one I got 2 of, and I wanted to experiment before I went with cold-brewing the others).

Anyway… this is light, refreshing and delicious. Yummy.

yay your cold brew pitcher came!

Yes… I’m actually much happier with it than I thought I would be. It’s nothing fancy and it’s not necessarily intended for tea (it doesn’t have any fancy infuser gadgetry or anything) but that’s part of what I like about it. All of the glass brewing pitchers with the infuser gadgets attached were either made of plastic or were so costly that I couldn’t justify the cost of it. I don’t drink that much iced tea – in the warm weather like now, I drink a half a gallon of iced tea a day, but, in cooler weather, I don’t drink it at all, so that would mean about a half a year of no use. I’m not spending 50+ on a pitcher when I won’t be using it regularly. I could easily justify the $250 I spent on my breville tea maker because that is something that I do use five to ten times a day, every single day… but not $50 for something I’d use for brewing a half gallon of tea every day for one and a half seasons out of the year.

This is the one I got: http://www.amazon.com/Bormioli-Rocco-Frigoverre-Hermetic-4-Ounce/dp/B0000DE9B5/ref=sr_1_3?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1341880799&sr=1-3&keywords=iced+tea I like the way it closes. It screws closed and has a gasket type seal, so I won’t have to worry about accidental spills.

Thank you for that link! I just added one to my cart! I am going to be making some home brewed Kumbucha (sp?) here soon and need a couple large sized containers with good sealing lids! This should do it!

LiberTEAS

You’re very welcome. I’ve had it less than a day and I’m really quite impressed with it thus far. The lid seals really well, so I do think it would be good for your kombucha.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

*

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

*

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
