Sipdown! I cold steeped this last night in a new cold steeping jug (http://www.teavana.com/tea-products/tea-accessories/tea-tools/p/iced-tea-pitcher-with-orange-lid). It’s pretty delicate, but I will NOT be pouring anything hot in here. Just cool water and tea leaves, and into the fridge. The strainer in the lid looks pretty good, although I don’t think it’d catch everything rooibos.

I did 4 tsp in about 1.5 litres for this cold steep. And it turned out so well! The tea is delightfully lemony, almost candy-like. Didn’t really need sugar.

I’m going to have to keep this on my list of “teas to cold steep”. I might end up getting more in the summer. If it’s available…

Mmmm…sounds like a traditional lemon iced tea. Delish!

Sounds yummy. I love a good lemon.

So this is the jug that worked and the other one was too tall?

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I got the blue plastic one with the long strainer, and it’s way too tall. It does seal, so I’m considering laying it on its side… IDK.

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!
