I cold brewed the last of this one. I switched things up this time around though. I started off with my 12oz Italian mug, I put the tea in, added a little bit of brown sugar and a splash of vanilla. Then I proceeded to fill the mug…but not with water…with milk. It sat in the fridge for about 48 hours and I’m now drinking it on this disgustingly hot day.

The milk is slightly discolored from the pouchong and is incredibly smooth and sweet and creamy and I need to buy more for this purpose! I even had my husband sip it and he didn’t think it was too bad. He hates coconut and doesn’t care for tea. This is incredibly delicious!

Okay, I know what I’m doing with the rest of my Coconut Pouchong!

…. it hadn’t even occurred to me to cold-brew a tea in milk!! How clever!! I need to try this :)

Someone had mentioned they had added some milk to their cold brew, so I figured why not just cold brew it in milk? It came out great!

I’m with Kittenna on this one – milk as a substitute for water? Sounds great! Gotta do this some time. Maybe. :) Makes me nervous. Guess I’ll have to take your word and try!

I would suggest starting off with a mug instead of a full pitcher. Just to see if you like it. But I found it absolutely delicious!

Profile

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
