i will be editing this post with my re-steep i plan on doing so stay tuned :) (i know i said i wouldn’t but check my gingerbread review and you will see why)
everything about this tea is amazing! b4 i head over to my parents tomarrow for our family christmas party i may try this shaken with ice! the smell of this tea alone is enough to get my mouth watering like crazy, only to realize it tastes almost the same as it smells!!
so im sitting here nursing some stitches and a bruised knuckle (darn snow shovel) and thought that strawberry would be perfect right now for the situation. i was right :) this tea never fails me if steeped right.
the color is a medium amber.
re-steeped this and surprisingly enough it isnt bad, i re-steeped for 10 mins and theres no bitterness but i can tell its not the same, it lost some of its strawberry flavor and gained an extra sweetness. i enjoy this. :) maybe ill get brave enough to do a 3rd sometime soon.
i love this tea! its just so relaxing and makes me feel like im drinking candy :) almost like a guilty pleasure. i tried it re-steeped…well it isnt bad, just not strong enough for me, it reminds me of watered down strawberry bath water, i drank it…i just dont plan on doing it again.
i over steeped this about 2 days ago and wow did i regret that! this is a very touchy tea 5 min steeping not a second longer or it will taste like your drinking bitter apple spray (its a training aid for pets you spray things you dont want them chewing on…unfortunately ive sprayed it in my face and know what it tastes like) but if you get it right WOW. this is a tea i keep coming back to over and over again!
time to get the travel mug set up and get ready for work!
:D another cup today! it is very late but luckly for me i have a very high tolerance for caffeine and will more than likely doze off to sleep without a problem. oddly enough my consumption of tea has increased and i seem to be sleeping more soundly at night (im weird lol) i really like how much the blueberry flavor comes through with this tea and the fact that i LOVE blueberries helps too :D
Blended with Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger (2 bags) again. This time I extended the brewing time by just a little, and used 11 teaspoons instead of 9. I had hoped to give the tea a stronger flavor, and it worked. I added sugar and cold water, eyeballing the amounts, and now it’s cooling in my fridge. My ingenuiTea is half-full of leaves when I’m done.
Very standard, but good. I find that brewing it with a little more than a teaspoon makes it more flavorful, but not bitter. Right now I’ve got a hot cup of it, sweetened with three packs of Sugar In The Raw because that’s how we do it in the deep south, dammit! Actually, I think it’s probably just a bad habit of mine. Anyway, I like this tea a lot. It would be good to keep around for everyday pots.
