I received this in my shipment yesterday!
I am now drinking my water with a tea bag in it…SO delicious. The pear is not overly strong/fake tasting, and it doesn’t just taste like pear-flavored water. The sencha clearly comes through and the two go together amazingly well.
I’m curious to try it hot, but this is a yummy way to have water. Glad I bought 2 packs (of 10 bags each)… I wonder if you can resteep?

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Cofftea

I got this one too, along w/ the unflavored green. Although cold brewing goes against everything I think of when I think of tea lol. It’s because of this I doubt you could resteep. I could very well be wrong.

Well, I’m going to try it today and I’ll post again if it works. Another option I will try soon for this tea (for first, or possibly 2nd steep) is the ice-brew method (putting the bag at the bottom of the pot, covering it with ice, and waiting until the ice is all melted)… If these do resteep, they will definitely be good value.

ice brew method? That’s a new one. Something I’d personally never try though.

Really? You should, at least with unflavored japanese green tea, it is delicious! (Shinobicha is actually the term for it; shinobi means “patient” because you have to wait a long time for the ice to melt. It works much better than simple cold brew, because the freezing temperature has a similar effect on the tea that the hot/boiling temperature does. However, the freezing temperature brings out all of the flavor without any of the bitterness! Seriouly, try it!

How many ice cubes/bag?

I’ve never done it with a teabag, but usually I do 2 tsp loose tea, and fill a 12-16 oz container with ice. That link should explain more too.
