Made some of this iced earlier. It was very yummy and bold. Does anyone know why it turns cloudy when iced?

Caitlin: One reason why teas become cloudy when iced is a drastic temperature change from hot to cold. I find that when I pour hot tea over ice it gets cloudy, or even if I add ice water to concentrated hot tea it gets cloudy. So instead I wait until the tea drops to room temperature before I chill it. This takes a little longer but it usually results in cloud-free tea.

There may be other reasons that I’m unaware of as to why teas become cloudy, or why this one in particular becomes cloudy, though.

Thanks for the info. I did the drastic temperature change thing, so that is probably why. I’ll remember to let it sit at room temperature!

I am bummed I just placed an order with Lupicia and they were out of stock on all of their Au Lait varieties. I hope they bring them back soon.

Yeah my boyfriend tried to order me some as a Christmas present and they were out then too! Must be a quite popular line!

Profile

Bio

I am a typical college student, an Evolutionary Anthropology major. I spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend and friends, playing TF2 and popcap games, reading, and of course drinking tea.

I first started drinking tea every morning when I was a freshman in high school. I have recently discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I absolutely adore trying new teas (especially ones that sound like desserts)…Although I will always have my old favorite: big bold breakfast teas and my new favorite: wonderfully flavorful rooiboses.
