I was curious to see if I could do another cold brew using the same tea leaves. I also think that I’m getting a little too miserly with my tea because of my self-imposed ban on buying any more tea until June. But I’ll say that I’m glad that I tried this. It’s just a shadow of its former self. Still pleasant, but I wouldn’t serve it to friends. I’ll probably do it again during May with the iced teas that I love, but it’s not a practice that I see as being common for me.

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
