I always do a resteeped pot of the tea that I make at night and chill it overnight in a mason jar to drink the next day. Sometimes, I taste different things in the cold tea than I did when it was hot or warm. This time there was little change. The chilled tea has a bit more bite, but still has a little bit of a murky stewed vegetable taste to it that I don’t like.

In the jar, it looks like I’ve got a urine sample on my desk with a straw in it. :| Also, it kind of smells like marijuana.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
