Cold-brewed (about 2 tsp for 450ml) way too long. Like more than 24 hours. It got bitter, which I remedied by adding more water and a little simple syrup to take the edge off. It wasn’t as good as it probably would have been after 8-12 hours brewing, but it still made a fine iced tea. I should get myself a proper iced tea pitcher so I can easily remove the leaves if I don’t want to drink it right away.

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.
