Cold-brewed this overnight in the fridge using 2 heaping teaspoons for 500 ml water.

I’ve been foregoing tea lately in favor of cold-brewed iced coffee (I know, I’m a filthy turncoat) but I’m still trying to chip away at my stash little by little. This was pretty nice; flowery with the bergamot and jasmine, and tasted quite fancy. Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling particularly fancy when I drank this and would have preferred something more refreshing. Would probably be good served hot at a tea party with doilies and silly hats – which, mark my words, I will get around to one day.

lol I’ve been hitting the iced coffee lately too… its just so cooling.. I mean it is more dehydrating so its really not a great idea.. but I just can’t say no.

I don’t know what makes cold coffee so nice when it’s warm out, but when I was in California last month I was drinking at least one iced coffee a day.

Bio

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops.
