drank Strawberry Shortcake by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

Well I cold-brewed it for quite awhile, 14 hours at least, and the bitterness and astringency are both definitely gone. Unfortunately, so is most of the flavour… The creaminess kind of comes out in the finish I guess, but otherwise it’s kind of like strawberry-scented water. I put in a good amount of leaf but maybe I’ll try it with even more. And I’ll try it brewed double strong then poured over ice too. I want to make this work!!!

Ok, so the black tea cold-brewed ok? I was wondering about that but didn’t yet make it back to your post to comment about it. Perhaps I’ll try it with a small amount myself.

Black teas are my favourite to cold brew, Krystaleyn! They and whites both thrive that way.

Yeah I think the tea itself was just fine, there was absolutely NO astringency or bitterness. This is the only black tea I’ve cold-brewed so far though. And Tina I am definitely gonna try cold brewing some white teas soon!

@Red Rose – good to know! I will definitely have to start giving them a try.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
