Tea of the afternoon here – I still have lots of FF darjeelings from last year but this is one of the only SF ones I have. Probably do NOT need to buy any more darjeelings this year unless I can get this cute guy I know interested in tea. ;-)

I totally need to get my guy into tea. He doesn’t like it hot, so I need to make the effort to ice it for him!

TeaBrat

Do you ever cold brew your teas? Some of them are really nice that way, esp. oolongs, white tea and some greens.

Tealizzy

No, I’ve never cold brewed anything. Do you have a recommendation for how best to do it?

TeaBrat

Here are some very basic instructions, it is so easy!

Profile

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
