I think I like it better iced, as Spoonvonstup suggested. Thank you! It’s still not my favorite, but I will enjoy what I have left.

I still had some iced tea left and my sister tried it- she was instantly in love and thought it tasted like miso.

Spoonvonstup

Glad you liked it better, and that your sister loved it! Miso? Hmm.. I think I could see it tasting like rice or sake, but miso seems very savory to me. I’ll have to ice some soon and see if I can taste that. How did you think the flavors changed from hot to iced?

Rellybob

Yeah I didn’t understand her reasoning at all but she was adamant that that’s what it reminded her of. To me the sweetness stood out more, and I finally tasted some of the lime notes. It didnt seem as drying, which was good. And i thought the sun dried characteristics stood out more. Its tanginess reminded me of sun dried tomatoes.It wasn’t an iced tea I could just slurp down- its taste was so complex.

Bio

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
