drank Elyse's Blend by Harney & Sons
1769 tasting notes

When I read what was in this blend, I thought it might be perfect for cold brew, especially since the assam in it is sometimes a little too assertive for me. This is soooo good. Just went to Sam’s Club and when I got back to my car the external temp reading said 106! I know it was elevated from being in a parking lot in full sun, but still…iced was the way to go today!

The great part – I actually failed to get this tea out of the fridge until the leaves had been sitting there for three days! (This is a resteep mostly with a few fresh leaves added a la JacquelineM’s recommendation!) And it isn’t bitter at all. The honey flavor has taken on a decidedly floral tone to me, but not in a bad or cloying way – just in a fresh, summery way!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Oh! Oh! Forgot to say – just placed my order for new Wild Wuyi Black! And you can use the summer12 coupon code and STILL get free shipping for orders over $25! You only have to put in a code for the shipping offer if you are in Alaska or Hawaii!

I’m glad that this tea works out nicely cold brewed, I think that will be my next experiment with this tea.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four 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.

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

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