I decided to cold brew this one for 24 hours so I’m drinking my results today. This is such an interesting tea and the cold brewing has brought out some nice lemon-y notes in addition to the savory artichoke. So glad I tried it this way!

So Amy, how much tea did you use?

TeaBrat

This tea comes in little cones, I used about 7 of them for the cold brew thingie

ScottTeaMan

Is it a quart…….I hate to be so specific all the time. ://

Bonnie

I sent you some Scott if you don’t have any but I didn’t put in 7!

Kittenna

Haha, I guess I won’t be trying this unless I purchase some – I just got a sample of 2 for regular hot brewing. Lemon-y notes sound interesting though!

TeaBrat

I used my Teavana glass tea tumbler, it has 16 oz in it so that’s why I used a lot.

Butiki Teas

I tried cold brewing this and wow I love it! Its almost like a different tea. I used 2 nettles in my 4oz gaiwan for 32 hours. I think though that it was probably closer to 5 or 6 oz though since it nearly filled my 6oz cup. The lemon flavor is so bizarre.

TeaBrat

Stacy – It was really neat, wasn’t it? :)

Butiki Teas

Yes, very very cool! I hardly ever cold brew teas and it makes me wonder what other teas I should try this with. Here is a pic of the blue nettle experiment: https://twitter.com/Butikiteas/status/208575639031255040/photo/1 The wet leaves are still pretty green after 32 hours of cold brewing which differs from the hot brew.

Now this sounds good!! I love choices, but there is almost too many choices-ALMOST. :))

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
