drank Berry Melange by Custom
1718 tasting notes

A couple summers ago, when kind Steepies helped me replenish my tornado-crashed pantry, JacquelineM tucked in a tin filled with odds and ends of berry-flavored teas that, shaken together, made a quirky mystery grab bag of fruit flavor. Just enough left for one last jar of sun tea. Chilled, it’s a lovely treat to spend the day with. (Writing and doing grungy housework via the carrot-and-stick method: Write, sip. Vacuum, sip. Fold, sip. Dishes, sip.)

Also builds a strong case for me, when the tin is finally empty, to start a “scrap” tin of my own. Waste not, want not.

I have a scrap tin of miscellaneous blacks that I started awhile back. Things that are okay, but not awesome, that don’t have to be had by themselves to get any special notes out of. I have been using it to make iced tea with when I don’t want a fruit or vanilla iced tea.

Iced tea is so forgiving, you about can’t ruin it. (Unless you threw in something smoky—can’t imagine that would be pleasant at all.)

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.
