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.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

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

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

*

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
