Check out my latest cold brew review here…
Not bad as a matcha being used to make a latté which is what I did. I lightly earthy and vegetal matcha. I made my latté with water, half & half, and 2% Milk. I will post pictures and directions to my latté if you are curious to know about how I prepared it or perhaps to recreate it yourself on my blog located here. http://iheartteas.teatra.de/2011/07/how-i-made-my-matcha-latte/

I have just recently had this cold brewed and with some wonderful results. Check out my blog entry for complete details…
Tonight I am trying this much anticipated tea cold brewed. As many of you know I have gone a bit nuts but as I see it, it is just another way to experience tea and potentially experience the same tea in a new light. This was no exception. I found that the black tea base added depth to this cold. Plus, it is extermely creamy. I had assumed the coconut would be strong. Shows what I know. Although, I can taste it, it isn’t anywhere near as strong as I thought it would be. Overall it delicious and most unexpected.
Read here about why I am cold brewing so many teas lately. The first step is admitting you have a problem right?
As of late I have been on a cold brewing kick and I feel like a kid in a candy store. It is as if I am tasting all of my teas all over again. It is so much fun primarily because of all the different flavor profiles I am getting from a tea I have had hot. It is just so exciting having the first sip and falling in love with it all over again. Especially this one that I never imagined would be so good cold brewed. I made this blend for winter and it just shocks me how refreshing it actually is. The peppermint candy is most noticeable and it just sparkles. The cinnamon is there holding it together and giving it a bit of mellow feel. The vanilla shows at the end giving you a slightly smooth creamy finish, but just a hint. I will be making this again. I won’t rate it since I made this signature blend but if I did I would give it a 90.
I made this cold brewed today it is surprisingly more vegatal than expected. Which for me is just fine. The peach flavor is explosive and so bright and vibrant. Not a drop of artificial syrup like flavor. I am actually find this a bit bolder than when hot. An interestingly wonderful surprise. Bumped up because of its ability to rock both hot and cold.
Bumping this up for cold brewing awesomeness. What’s interesting the Sencha base was so much more vegatal. The watermelon and raspberry was fresh and sweet. Perfect summer drink.
Ok so seriously this is amazing. I decided on a whim that I wanted to try this cold brewed so I dug out my Ball jar and filled it with tea and cold water. I let it sit in the fridge over night and this little miracle was the result. The coconut tastes young and buttery or maybe creamy is what I am thinking but not creamy like milk. I think I am going back to saying buttery. I get a definite tang of the cheesecake, which lacked when hot. The best part is how the flavor just lingers in your mouth. Kudos, Frank!
Wow, this one doesn’t mess around. Bold, brisk, astringent, a good slap in the face kind of tea. This is one of those teas I drink when I want something loud and in charge or if I am a girl on a mission and need a little liquid attitude. Welcome to my permenant collection. Delicious!
Ok so I really wanted to love this and I can say with confidence that one pouch does not make 1 gallon. With this and the watermelon I followed the directions as stated and made a gallon in both cases. Unfortunately, in both cases they felt watery and there was virtually no presence of ant black tea. On the plus side when I did taste the plum flavor it was dazzling. I just need to test on my own but do feel like I have wasted two pouches so far. :-(
Wow if this is normal then by gosh I can finally say I am. Trust me if you knew me, you would know that I am not usually referred to as a normal person. Of course, I don’t consider this as a negative at all. Even now not so normal things are afoot. I am drinking this tea before bed and for some reason as I am typing this my inner monologue has a British accent. I blame Dr. Who for that. Been pretty much watching Dr. Who on Netflix off and on all throughout the day. Now to the point, sorry about the rambling.
Amazingly good. I will be keeping this in my permanent stash. It is rich, bold, brisk, malty, a bit astringent. This is a tea with an attitude I can relate with. This tea is just trying to act normal but is anything but. Delicious and highly recommended.
Thank you again for sending me this little treat Courtney of Little Mew Brew found on Tea Trade.
I am trying this for the first time and just the sound of it had me waiting for the mail to show up. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations. I really didn’t taste raspberry just a slight unidentifiable fruitiness. The cream cheese gained strength the longer it cooled. However, I was looking for more of a balanced cup with an obvious raspberry favor. Still not terrible just not what I expected. I do feel fortunate to have tried it none the less and maybe with further steeping experimentation it will improve.
First I want to thank Jimmy of Shui Tea for sending this sample along with my order it had peaked my curiousity when I read the description. The addition of stevia scared me and intrigued me the most based on my personal preferences of course.
As it turns out this is not really my cuppa. Of course I have only had this hot so far and it was recommended I try this cold and I promise I will. It was just to sweet for me and the sweetness tasted a little strange to me. I can’t really put my finger on it. It was however plummy as stated but still so far not my thing. The black teas are hardly noticeable, I did wish that would have stuck out a bit more. Once I try it cold I will reevaluate my review but until then I will keep things as they are.
Still very thankful for the opportunity to try it. :-)
I purchased based on a recommendation and I am so glad I did. It is wonderful steep after steep. Each bringing on new characters not present in the previous steep. I have to say the 3rd was my favorite. I got a wonderful well rounded roasted flavor balanced well with an earthy backdrop. The best part for me is how many different flavor profiles I got from one tea. Delicious!
First I want to thank Courtney of Little Mew Brew for Rescuing that tea from Retirement. I had never tried this tea before now and I am so happy I got it.
This is sweet, juicy, fresh, and the Sencha is delicate and buttery. I have tried this hot so far and although I imagined it would have been good it had surpassed actually surpassed expectations. Delicious and I can’t wait to try it cold.
