Ok, I’m a scorpio, and there is water ALL over my natal chart. So I tend to be guided however the mood strikes me. A couple of very close friends gifted me with this tea when they returned from a beautiful trip to Maui. The tropical flavor of this tea is VERY pronounced and lovely. It’s a very strong tea, and will give you the caffeine boost you’re looking for depending on your favored quantity per cup and steep times for black tea. I’m not big into iced teas, would rather have a piping hot cup even in the dead of summer. However I would imagine this would make a splendid iced tea because the flavor is so nicely pronounced. This has become a standard in my collection.

I’m not big on iced tea either, but that’s probably because it involves more work and I am very lazy. Never underestimate the lazy.

Totally with ya on the laziness. I’d rather buy premade iced tea than make my own from scratch. I think I have to used more because once the drink is ice cold the flavor dampens a bit and that’s what I was originally going for anyway. Great tasting iced tea has the potential to be cost prohibitive. :P

Bio

Intergalactic tea traveler. Will stop this side of the Milky Way for piping hot black tea in a fine bone china cup with milk and sugar. Add a tea sandwich and some sweet morsels and I just might stay a while. Music, Photography, Cooking, Art, Spirituality, and the Paranormal are preferred topics of conversation.

Tea Preferences: ALWAYS loose leaf over bagged fannings or god-forbid, dust. I do bag my own loose leaf, and will resort to pre-bagged black or herbal if I have to. Black tea is always taken with milk and sugar, and herbal may escape the dairy and sweet to thrive on it’s own in the cup on occasion.

Allow yourself the possibility of a life without bagged fannings or dust – and open your heart to all that – that is loose leaf. You’ll immediately discover where ALL the flavor has escaped to. It’s like a universe of flavor you never knew existed. ;)
