I opened this ounce of tea for the first time yesterday to make iced tea with it. Between my lackluster experience with most MBSC teas and my waning interest in flavored greens I just never had enough initiative to open the pouch.

I thought making a pitcher full of it might use it up, but when I measured it into my 40oz bodum pitcher it was maaaaybe half of the pouch. Cold brewed overnight, and it was pretty decent. Not awesome, but decent. The green was a bit grassy and the citrus edging on bitter in the cold brew. I suppose I should some time try it hot to see how it plays out but like I said, I have little interest right now. Sometimes an improved palate can be annoying.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
