I resteeped the bag last night (hot brewed) for iced tea today, and it is still quite delicious. The first infusion (cold brewed) was better, though, but this was still very good, and quite refreshing. Been sipping on it all day until just a bit ago when I decided to switch back to hot tea.

“I resteeped the bag”, words I never thought I would see in a LiberTEAS post. This must be miracle tea!

LOL! I’ve been resteeping these iced tea bags (hot brewed) for no other reason than to get two pitchers-full of tea from them. And I’ve not been disappointed. But, I don’t think you’ll ever end up catching me resteeping a commercial teabag… It takes a good deal out of me just to steep it the first time, and even if I do enjoy it, I don’t think I enjoyed it enough to resteep it.

I just re-read what I wrote and I DO sound like a tea snob, don’t I? Sheesh! Oh well, I don’t think that my acknowledgement of my snobbery will change my behavior when it comes to bagged tea.

lol My wife mentioned Starbucks today and I gave her the look. She said, “what? They have tea.” To which I replied, “Not real tea.” I still like my cheapster teas but I see no reason to over pay for bad tea. So tea snob? Eye of the beholder. One man’s trash, and other assorted cliches. We like what we like.

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.
