Sipdown, 135. Cold brew.
So I had been using some large tea sacs for cold brewing my teas because it makes cleaning up in the morning easier. I got a pack of them in a gift set and I never use them because in hot brews I can taste the paper, but I figured cold brews might work better. I did wonder why it was so hard to get an optimal cold steep on a green tea since I used to get awesome cold steeps on greens back in the day. Then I started running out of the sacs so I started cold steeping with the leaves floating free in the glass again. I would never have thought that the tea sacs would make a difference in the finished product, but somehow the seem to! This cup was green and jasminey and perfect, with no hint of bitterness. Total yum! No more tea sacs for me, in any use.
