I really need to find out the brand for y’all on this one, because it’s just plumb tasty! OK, Lemon, not plum. In bulk at my local herbal hangout, and they tend to stock San Francisco Herb and Spice or Frontier Natural Food Co-op stuff, but I haven’t found it on either website.

At any rate, it is a lovely Cheapster Steepster blend with gobs of lovely dried lemon peel. I prepared a pot properly, then chilled it—don’t have much luck cold-steeping green tea (it bitters up). At any rate, this has a wonderful baked-goods lemon cookie/pastry flavor that is every bit as good cold as it is hot. My introductory ounce is going fast.

Well, pickle. I am the Black Hole of discontinued flavors…as soon as I fall in love with something, somebody else decides to pull it. Further research led me here http://www.herbspicetea.com/scripts/silverware.exe/moreinfo@d:%5Celevclients%5Csfherbtea%5Celevator.prg?ITEM=1044NH with the unfortunate word “closeout” behind it. Sigh.

Oh man, that always sucks! By the way, I’m not sure you’re missing out on cold-brewing. A lot of people seem to enjoy it, but it just scares the bejeebies out of me.

With a brain as needy as mine is needing directions to follow for everything or I get confused, I use videos from the big tea houses like Teavivre and Verdant all the time. Verdant has all the cold brew and iced information that helped me understand what to do. Fear not Dylan of Oxford…brave one that thou art. and gmathis…I love the Well, pickle! What charm!

Thanks, Bonnie. I’m probably not the hick I make myself out to be. Much.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
