drank Cranberry Apple by Bigelow
1615 tasting notes

9 months ago I made this and noted I had 4 bags left… and I just made the tea up last night.

4 tea bags in 6 cups water overnight in the fridge.

I think I have finally come to the conclusion that I prefer fruit tisanes as cold brews. Even when they’re loaded with hibiscus, I would rather drink this than a cold-brewed black tea. Black tea can be hot brewed and poured over ice for immediate gratification, or in smaller amounts (2-4 cups).

So. I like this better than all the SBT’s I bought just because it’s not a black tea. Even though the SBT’s have better flavour, I just… have been brewing them and then leaving them in the fridge so long I have to throw them out.

So even last time I said less hibiscus-based bagged brews, maybe I should buy more?

Hmmm… Interesting. I’m just getting started with learning what to try as cold brews… should be an interesting summer :)

Some people really like cold brews of black tea. I’ve realized that when I drink a cold brew it’s not because I want more caffeine, it’s because I’m thirsty and I’m using cold brew fruit or herbal stuff as a juice replacement. Iced black tea is great up till about lunch time, but I can’t drink at my desk at work, so it’s a weekend-only kind of thing.

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!
