A couple of times I have made this tea forgetting that there is green tea mixed in with the black. I treated it like a black tea and it became astringent. My fault, not the tea’s fault. Since I have messed it up several times, I decided I would give it a chance as a cold steep. It stayed in the fridge for one whole day! The color is so light, clear, and pure. The flavor is light and good, too. A tiny bit fruity, a tiny bit floral.

I add simple syrup and pour it into my Zoku Slushy and Shake Maker and VOILA! I have a beautiful tea dessert! YUMS! I can’t wait to try lots more tea like this. Tea slushy on a sticky summer day? Yes, please!

I am loving my Zoku stuff. It is so hot and humid where I live that you have to do something to cool off!

Ooh. I wonder if it would work in the popsicle maker. I know a certain amount of sugar is needed for it to release…

It does! I made tea pops last year, but I did use sweetened ice tea.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
