Cold brew of this one tonight as well. I think I prefer it hot to be honest. Th cold brew just seemed to flatten the flavours and make it less appealing to me. Still a nice tea, but not as versatile as I’d hoped.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I have some of this in the Azzrian Box that I’ve been working on sipping down today. Haven’t gotten to this one yet…

I’m totally spending this weekend drinking down things and packing up swap boxes!

sounds like a good idea to me! I’m getting ready to do some new trades, & I’m thinking I want to polish off the trades I already did

This is weird, but this one as well as other flavored teas taste best to me after they have been inthe fridge for several days. This gets really sweet and mellow, and a friend who had a glass last summer immediately bought a pound of it for iced tea.

Not weird..my cold brews are usually put in the fridge and then I forget about them, put the tea away and then have to play the “what tea is this again?” Game lol

Do I understand correctly that you steeped cold for only 7 min 45 sec?? I always thought cold steeping was a process of hours… (not that I’ve ever tried :-P).

the system won’t let me put in hours – and since i was writing this on the ipad i couldn’t get it to put 8min or more. fixed it now :) it was cold brewing for a couple days :)

Barbara

Thanks! :-)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
