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.

Are people cold-brewing raw Puer these days? Just curious.
Sarsonator said
Oddly, I have cold brewed everything except pu'erh. I'll have to give that a try :)
Yang-chu said
"Cold brew" is this what the rest of us call "sun tea?"

I've made cold
apt said
i can't imagine raw puerh cold brewed tasting good. ripe, I can understand (although I dislike ripe)
Cwyn said
I can see cold brewing used leaves, but I usually would prefer to cold
sansnipple said
pretty much, the cold dry weather definitely caused all my puerh to go into hibernation, most dramatically with the shengs, but the shus somewhat too, do you not notice any seasonal changes in yours?
Sarsonator said
I haven't cold
Yang-chu said
Thanks for that update. I hear Coors is "cold
Chahai said
Hey all, may the puerh river never dry out in your chahais! It's cold
sansnipple said
Drinking some sweet molassesy 2009 Feng Qing shu, nice and smooth and gently warming on a cold
Cwyn said
I bought this same cake too, based on teadb.org's recommendation. It just arrived a few days ago, but because of my head cold
sansnipple said
tastes of Yunnan Sourcing 2012 Wuliang cake, so far its just sort of light and floral and grassy. I just got it and the cake has no scent at all leading me to believe that It's currently dormant (probably from the cold
Bonnie said
taste steeps 3-5 (usually the best). Another method thats fast is a finum and mug. Puerh in the finum and lift it from the mug when steep time is done. BTW spent leaves make good cold brewed tea.
sansnipple said
seem to have lost nearly all of my (previously ravenous) desire for shu lately just as the weather warmed and spring/summer arrived, so I guess shu/ripe puerh is more of a seasonal cold
jschergen said
the years to not damage the original character. Agree on them being cheaper. The other thing that really intrigues me is the possibility of aging oolongs in the west where our cold and dry climate can be used to our advantage.
mrmopar said
it. Very complex kind of hard to pull individual notes out, but thick and oily and it all seems to work pretty well. i may have some mixed or muted tasting notes on this as I think a cold is
Awkward Soul said
some surprise coffee notes in early steepings. A couple steepings in, a nice creamy texture showed up making me lips feel nice, haha! I got 5 steepings in to discover a nice woody sap sweetness. Cold
Yang-chu said
thoughts. Ripe pu'er is easier on the stomach than the raw. The more bitter varieties possibly better for the heart. It's really going to depend on your constitution. Individuals who run on the cold
Yang-chu said
, pale beauty but not at the expense of taste. Today a new patient came by, I think she liked tea because she was unusually enthused by a cold
mrmopar said
a Yunnan Sourcing "Yong De Blue Label" shou. Had this over the course of the last two days. It has been a good cup to come home to after the cold
mrmopar said
it has stayed true brewing for three days now so it does have some lasting power to it. It is a warming sheng to drink on these cold winter days. I would recommend it if you want a smooth non astringent or smoky offering from Xiaguan.

Lime Chiffon is delicious cold brewed. ;)

Ooh! And Boatsman makes for a pretty solid cold brew!
yappychappy said
How much matcha did you use? Hot, warm, or cold water? How long did you whisk?
Lariel said
It was even good cold. So I'm trying to brew it that way now.
Frolic said
Water pitcher and Takeya Flash Chill Tea Maker came from amazon! There will be yummy tea, hot and cold today!
TeaLover58 said
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.
Kamyria said
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
Dinosara said
Yay, new Lupicia iced tea handy cooler (half size). I have the tea sample it came with cold brewing in it now.
~Caroline~ said
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!
boychik said
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.
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!
Awkward Soul said
I have that tumbler, it's amazing! I love it for cold steeps and iced tea http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/04/20/t-free-hourglass-travel-tea-tumbler-tea-ware-review/
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.
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!
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
Dexter said
I'm drinking some of it right now, and I put some in the fridge to cold
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!
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.
T.C. said
my swap/order from Alphakitty today 6oz of Ovation pineapple blueberry green along with samples of watermellon blackberry honeybush, pineapple sencha, buttered cranberry-orange scone, and the ultra rare (have to pry it from her cold dead fingers) sun and cloud mist mmmm
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!!!!
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.
Lily Duckler said
Tea party, Sil! Throw a tea party- it'd be a great excuse to work through the stash :) Big cold
Stephanie said
I re-stocked Sencha Fuka-Midori, got some Genmaicha extra green, 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!!
VariaTEA said
Well I walked the 15 minutes in the cold only to be told
TheTeaFairy said
Ok, you are too cute and too sweet! I'm waiting for a couple of orders and I braved the cold
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.
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 surprise box from Butiki, but the sender was *TeaTiff*. I'm so overwhelmed,and happy, and high. i dont have right words to say. it was cold
Dexter said
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
Cwyn said
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
Marzipan said
There was a big midwestern ice storm a few years ago, we didn't have power for a few days and it was super 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
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
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
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
Amaryllis said
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
ifjuly said
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
KittyLovesTea said
be :D Plus a bonus of this being Yixing. Thinking of seasoning this with Oolong as it usually tastes great hot, warm or cold
Suziqzer said
for my son to try, but I had no idea she was sending it already.. and with team of extras that she knew I'd love to try. Thanks again! What a great tea day! I'm just getting near finishing taxes and getting over this crazy cold
ifjuly said
been missing for ages, partly 'cause my schedule and free time's been thrown out of whack due to my husband being between jobs right now and home a lot, and partly because it's hot summertime and i'm just being boring with my cold
Kat said
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
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!

enjoying the Tirimisu blend of their rooibos Birthday Cake and Coffee Puerh, but I'm not normally a big fan of their teas. Their glass carafe is pretty awesome for cold brewing teas in a pretty pitcher.
