This (among other 52teas) just came in the mail – WOO HOO!!!

Started out with this one since I had the most of them. Brewed this as originally directed: one 2-quart tea sack in 16 oz (2 cups) boiling water for 3 minutes. Shook in about a third of a cup of sugar and diluted with another 2 cups worth of cool water and ice. This is so tasty! I love the bubble gum flavor! It’s a great balance of flavoring to tea.

I did resteep this in 1 cup of boiling water for about 4 minutes. Added in a little more than an eighth cup of sugar and diluted with another cup of icey cold water. It resteeps very well, just as Frank has said! Quite a deal if resteeped!

I’m keeping this in my cupboard, mostly for the summer months. Looking forward to having the husband try this out too!

Bio

I’m a native Midwesterner (Iowa, specifically) who was happily uprooted to California twice. SoCal is what I consider home, even though I currently don’t live there. I hope to return home again!

Tea has really come to fill the void of my current displacement. My husband & I (with our two tiny weenies) moved to Indiana hardly knowing a soul. It’s been a tougher transition for me than I’d thought it would be. I have amassed a cupboard of teas to keep me company until I feel more familiar in my newer surroundings.

I will refrain from giving numerical values to teas because I am a faddist. My likes and dislikes are constantly changing. Flavored blacks are what I gravitate to the most. Having said that, I do enjoy a wide variety of teas – you name it, I’ll try it. I may not like it today, but I might revisit it later and love it.

Flavor note: I prefer my teas to be bold in flavor. I am starting to come around to drinking tea without additives. But I do like to dirty my tea with rock sugar/simple syrup and sometimes with half-n-half/milk. Unflavored greens are unsweetened, but flavored greens I usually add rock sugar. Lately I have been favoring flavored guayusa and matés.
