Iced Tea – cold brew
took spent leaves from hot brew iced tea, poured in 3 cups cold water and stuck in fridge overnight
drank with a splash of mango torani syrup – needed a bit more mango but it was a nice smooth iced black tea with a hint of natural sweetness

I’ve never thought of using spent leaves to make iced tea ::strokes chin thoughtfully:: Yes, I shall have to try that soon. :)

i planned a hot / cold sequence – so i used more leaves than i usually would have and also did a fast steep of the first batch (like 2 minutes on the 4tsp leaf – 3 cup hot water) i think if you don’t over leaf by a little it ends up kind of weak on the second go round

normally 3 cups would have been 3 tsp not 4 and 3-4 minutes not 2 (for me)

Cool – thank you so much for the info. I’ll let you know when I try it!

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
