On that note, I'd love a field to specific if the tasting note was drank hot, cold

(sorry, not going through 45 pages of replies), so here it is: the ability to upload photos to our ratings. Like a cup of it steeping, a pic of someone dumping it down the drain, what it looks like cold-steeped, etc.
pafrisoli said
where to buy or price points? (4) Steeping instructions should go with the original tea, rather than the review, no? Also would be nice if you could do multiple instructions - one for hot & one for cold.

this month. I may make another Yunnan sourcing purchase specifically to pick up more of thids white tea.http://yunnansourcing.com/en/whitetea/2887-silver-needles-white-tea-of-feng-qing-spring-2014.html It makes an awesome and very quick and resteepable cold brew.

, it would be natural to assume that the best green tea would be that which comes from the first harvest, immediately after it was harvested. In fact, fresh, first harvest green tea is available thorughout the year. Japanese green tea growers have developed methods for cold

When you're devastated that your cold has put your taste buds out of commision & you can't sample your new teas.
Bubbles said
THIS! YES! My husband ALWAYS leaves some tea in the cup. I try to use the smallest cups in the house for him...still, I pour cold tea down the drain. Why, indeed!
Stephanie said
When you can't wait for your cold to go away so you can taste tea again. Tea is such a huge part of my day I really miss it when I can't enjoy it properly! :/

You're in a meeting and someone mentions they have a sore throat from a cold, and you pull out your "pencil case" with 8 different kinds of tea in it, including Twinings lemon and ginger.

When everyone else is groaning at the setback to summer, lots of storming and damp drizzly cold
Babble said
are several that are 20-30 min away, but they are not as good. I really like the far tea shop because they have a bottomless cup. For $7, for the whole day, you can have as many different teas as you like. You just have to commit to a temperature of tea - hot or cold.

spend time squealing non stop about them. Taking pictures for blog and showing everyone ("work" teeehehhehe!). All that and you forgot to make dinner and ran out of time to make anything decent. So, my dinner is some random tofu found in the fridge, cold, with kimchi dumped on top. Yeah. Wish I had rice /sadowl

52 teas are good for cold brewing I'm finding with their honeybush and rooibos. Also della terra lemon/lime chiffon :)

general for your body, helps flush toxins etc. LOL just don't be putting mountains of sugar/cream in it. Good job on getting though a couple of sip downs this weekend. Cold brewing is a good way to use up tea. I generally use more leaf in cold

Wow Sil good job!!!! I'm currently drinking 86 and have 85 in the fridge cold steeping. My cupboard is officially at 84 and I think I'll get one more in yet tonight.

Booker said
, Dexter! I only generally add sugar and cream/milk to Chai and I only have a few cups of that a week! Otherwise, I stick to straight tea, though I might add a bit of honey to some of them! Regarding my cold

I've decided that it is a cold
Dexter said
more leaf some less. You will have to play with it and find what you like. Also don't be scared to mix and match. I quite often toss straight green tea with and fruit tisane together and let it cold

How much matcha did you use? Hot, warm, or cold water? How long did you whisk?

It was even good cold. So I'm trying to brew it that way now.
The Cookie Lady said
hope you end up loving them all! I like Harney & Sons quite a bit but have only tried a couple of these. I've found that Paris is good both hot and cold and that I only like Caribe cold.

Arpt-It's very good! I have a cold and I can still smell the flavor of cake in my house when I make this tea.

Just came home from work with the cold from hell to find my 52teas order has arrived! I want to try everything... Damn you stuffed up nose!

I hope you feel better soon!! Why not start trying them now... Scare the cold away with a cup of a delicious hot tea. :D

Yay, new Lupicia iced tea handy cooler (half size). I have the tea sample it came with cold brewing in it now.

Got my Davids Tea Boxer sale with teawear. I tried to take off brewing basket of my new Timolino, but couldn't:( Maybe its just too cold.

Jackie T said
I am feeling the same way with a cold right now, and it is such a bummer when you can't taste or smell your new teas because of it!
Suziqzer said
I got some samples from Teavivre yesterday that I am looking forward to trying as soon as I get rid of this cold and can taste something. thanks Angel for working with me!
Roswell Strange said
So it's 2AM so technically I received this mail yesterday, but I got more Coconut Grove (and a couple other samples) from the awesome *Whatshesaid*! Excited to get cold brewing!

I'm drinking some of it right now, and I put some in the fridge to cold
KiwiDelight said
Today is overcast and a bit cooler! Yay! (I prefer the cold, haha) I'm curious about this tea and might try it today. I ordered a Ru Kiln cup, and also a test tube steeper.
Dinosara said
My Cadeau Deco Vendome order full of Dammann teas arrived today, and I was thankfully home to sign for it thanks to the bitter cold
cookies said
Oh, that's a fantastic price! I'm going to have to check my Target to see if they have any. I use them for cold brewing too, so ridiculously convenient.
CherryJam said
I have now tried them all except Rooibos chai. Favourite are Paris and Caribe. Bought a tin of Paris, it's divine. Maybe I can go back and get another sample of caribe and try it cold!

Ok, you are too cute and too sweet! I'm waiting for a couple of orders and I braved the cold
Tealizzy said
got my first Tealux order! Really quick too! I totally wasn't expecting it until later this week! Awesome! I also have to say their sample size is great! Looks like between 0.5 to 1 oz. of tea!! I already put my dance with elephants tea in for a cold brew! Can't wait to see how it turns out!!
MissB said
last Teavana order took almost a month to get here, and there were zero backordered items on it. When I emailed to ask what was up (the order prior, it took less than a week), they sent me a cold response basically telling me to be patient. Interestingly, the order showed up less than a week after that email.
TastyBrew said
day for tea mail! I got my butiki order with a bunch of samples to try! And my herbal infusions order. Now if only my cold would go away so I can start trying the new teas. This thing is dragging on fooooorrrrrreeeeeevvvvvveeeeerrrr!!!!
Frolic said
going to have to revise my review again or add onto it. The tiny bit of soapy aftertaste was gone after the tea cooled a bit more. It's sooo good. I think I'll either cold brew some or flash chill it.
TastyBrew said
! I'm drinking a TON of tea, but only teas I have a bunch of that i can imagine what they taste like. I don't want my f'd up taste buds to ruin potentially tasty new teas! I'm going to the doctor in a few minutes. Time to get some antibiotics. I swear every cold I ever get ends in a sinus infection.
Stephanie said
I re-stocked Sencha Fuka-Midori, got some Genmaicha extra green, cold
Amaryllis said
some! I think they were on clearance becuase they've had them in our target since October last year and looks like they haven't been selling at all. They really are so convenient. Especially when you want to grab a nice cold

got a pot I ordered from the Yunnan Sourcing sale, and a pound of organic rooibos from EnjoyingTea. I've never tried rooibos, but they have excellent organic rooibos. My cherry tree is going to have lots of cherries this year so I am thinking of cold

enjoy hot tea in summer as much as winter, and do feel a bit better about the ambient temperature when I do. I find room temperature drinks more off-putting than truly hot or cold

got my *Verdant* replacement package today - yay finally have Yu Lu Yan Chai!!! Will have to wait for another night though - too sick with a head cold
ifjuly said
like 80% of the order was unflavored greens and oolongs, two categories I knew nearly nothing about pre-Steepster (and for the longest time figured I didn't care for--Verdant and Den's taught me otherwise, whee). I've been pretty good too about drinking my bajillion older samples too--cold
Cavocorax said
got an awesome package from *Courtney* with Nina's Paris tea and a fancy sample of WP tea that I was really interested in, AND my tentacle mug from DAVIDs came with the cotton candy rooibos sample - it's cold
Lala said
is a bit different too but I still love it! I just wanted to say kudos to Harney's staff because I was really worried about shipping as well as the cold here up North and that they would break, but the packaging was superb.
ifjuly said
tracking right now aaaand my sent stash is just so sad and small comparatively. She included a thoughtful note explaining why she picked all the (so many!) teas she did to surprise me with. I owe you big Dexter3657! BIG. I was bedridden today so this has turned a disappointing, freezing cold write off of a day into a good one. <3
EvaGrimm said
so far. I'm going to send a few out a few samples today, hopefully in time to catch the mailman! The cremes are a nice in-between to start with. It's nice because you can still enjoy them hot, rather than feeling like they always need to be cold

case, after debating for literally months about whether I should get more from the anniversary collection. They were at my local target. I would have gotten the other two cases if we had the car. I'm a complete sucker for gorgeous blue glass. I use mason jars to cold

Lemon French Macaron and the world is a pretty place. I aaaaaaalso got my Red Leaf order today (couldn't resist that Caramel sale), which I'm super excited about even though matcha and I have a relationship that seems to run rather hot and cold

tea I’ve had recently) 2013 Dehong Mao Cha 2013 Daxue Five Century Raw Pu’er 200g cake Morning Sun Black White Night I also got a pu’er pick and Garret was kind enough to include samples of 2014 Temple Stairs mini-tuochas and 2014 Jing Mai Shan Wild. Rainy cold

I don't know how the Dan Cong is. I'm so anxious to try but am sick with a cold

me feel sad I'm not drinking real tea. I think maybe if I choose flavors I associate with teas, chai, earl gray, lemon, etc, maybe I can find some things. I've noticed since I've been drinking more tea since it got cold
madametj said
use. The initial seasoning is just supposed to help the pot not "steal" too much flavor from your tea during the first few weeks of use. What I do is pretty much: 1. Rinse out the teapot with cold

exactly like an expensive pastry, with notes of almond and cinnamon. Their Nirvana is a nice, fruity green, and the taste seems to get clearer and cleaner after the first steep. I usually cold
Amaryllis said
leak. If I tighten the top and leave it for an hour or too it'll create a vacuum affect that seals everything in pretty tight. But thing that has something to do with the cold
ifjuly said
too via UPS. i've wanted to try their bohea for ages and it finally went back in stock, and boychik got me fixated on the nahorhabi full leaf assam so there's that too. so much delicious tea, it motivates me to kick this cold's butt so i can enjoy it by the weekend!
