I have this in the bagged form, and have been trying to think of ways to drink it up. Oolongs just aren’t a go-to for me, although I tend to enjoy them when I actually make them.

So I cold steeped this overnight. 1 triangle bag in 16 oz water. It’s so good! I stuck it into a thermos today, and am sneaking sips at work. I have a few bags left, and this is definitely the way to go.

I just have to remember to start with room temperature water, because if I start with cold water, the leaves don’t unfurl overnight.

Yep, cold brew is always my solution when I want to use up a tea. :)

I’ve been doing a fair amount of cold brewing. I figured that if I leave my steeper in the fridge overnight with loose tea, it’s a perfect amount for my cold drink bottle… and no straining!

I try to cold brew but often the tea just sits in the fridge for weeks.

… actually I’ve got one in there now from Halloween.

I do that too, Cavo. That’s why I use my steeper now. I just emptied out a couple jars with loose tea that may have been in there for a couple months… Too much effort to strain them.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
