From the Round 3 Here’s Hoping TTB

I took mj’s advice and cold brewed this one. It’s thick, syrupy, sweet, and super fruity. There is just a touch of bitterness at the end of the sip, but I think that’s my fault because I let it cold steep for too long (almost 24 hours!). This is a great summer tea. Makes me wish I was back at the beach with a glass of this in my hand listening to the waves.

I usually only cold steep this one in the 10-15 hour range if I remember correctly, so that might help with the bitterness :). I don’t remember getting any bitterness at all

Honestly, I was expecting it to be undrinkable after steeping for so long, but it was only slightly bitter right at the end of the sip. Guess I lucked out. I can see how a 10 hour cold steep would be great for this tea though.

I need to set alarms for myself when I cold steep teas. I always forget them!

I just forgot one for two days but I lucked out and it was not bitter at all!

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
