This Premium Pekoe Blend is very good for iced tea by the jar.

It is brewed hot; steeping time for between 3-5 minutes (using one tea bag per desired cup) usually I would used between 3-5 bags for one full jar/gallon. After letting it cool I would pour into jar and for daily jaunts out and about it would be transported in a smaller tea bottle at times a small slice of lemon is added. No sugar.

It is best with some ice in the tea bottle to preserve the coolness of the drink.

Premium blend is not costly at all. Should not have to apologize for lack of tea name brand.

I am down to my last few bags of the Pekoe tea…a good thing since I can’t wait to open the new box of Bromley Estate Tea. I am just counting the days, by weeks end for sure. I have to remember to buy some lemon/limes. Ice tea heavan, well a bit.

Used up the last of the Pekoe tea. I think of it as Pekoe, Sheriff Roscoe Pekoe from that show Dukes of Hazard folks…and that rowdy Sheriff Roscoe and his assistant always saying Roscoe Pekoe…etc. Nothing to do with tea. Since Pekoe is the leaf’s top layer and length; Roscoe Pekoe was a little guy for a sheriff.

Tea is gone, box is empty…adding it to future shopping list.

Back to Orange Pekoe haven were I so inclined there is haven. For iced teas brews for sure.

This Green tea is best for daily consumption. It is easily drinkable.

Suggested serving after steeping for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes is to serve with sugar, milk or lemon. I prefer mine plainly brewed and piping hot. It is remedy for all that ails.

This is a daily drink when not trying one more expensive like the Matcha Japanese Green tea.

Today, I am made myself a small cup of the Matcha Japanese Green; can’t tell you how nice to have the real stuff; and this is a slurping, mouth watering and lip smacking drink. One day away from it and I was salivating. Oh, but it is such a small can.

Out of Matcha, so I am back to plainly Green store brand tea. It is a choice-liken daily drink. Less than pennies to a cup. Well again the math is wrong.

My time on Steepster.com may be coming to an end since I cannot fight the grimness in living, I am on the losing end of things and this is no forum/decorum.

I have been having daily brew of Green tea. I am grateful for a cup of green tea; to be able to brew one’s own cup of tea is very good.

Grateful is I.
