Sipdown!

I made a huge gallon pitcher of this one iced the other day. I knew that I didn’t have enough tea left for just the right amount so I dumped the rest of what I had left and kept it in the fridge for well over 24 hours to get the most out of it.

OH MY GOODNESS! The rating on this one is going waaaaaaay up! This is one of the most interesting iced teas I’ve ever had! I’ve iced this one before by pouring it over iced but cold steeped this one really shines! The sage and lavender really came out this time! That paired with the fruit is just sooooo delicious, I can’t even handle it! It’s such an interesting herb-y than fruity flavor combination! I’m ramblin so I’ll stop but omg this one is soooo good cold steeped!

Hey! How you doin?! By the way, David wrote a nice piece on iceing tea’s in the latest Verdant newsletter…did you read it? Talked about iced slushies. Very good article. Hope you’re well! WHEN are you getting your drivers license?!

Michelle

I love this one!

@Bonnie: Hi there! I’m pretty good, school is just now ending for me so I’ve been a little busy but other than that I’m pretty good! I’m going to read David’s article right now, sounds sooo interesting. And unfortunately I can’t get my drivers license for another half a year because I am the youngest in my grade (I’m only 15 still and won’t be 16 until August 20th) so I’m last in line for driver’s ed at school (can’t take it privately, it’s waaayyyy too much money)

@Michelle: This one is sooo yummy! To be honest I have no idea why I didn’t cold steep it earlier while I still had some left!

Sigh you make me want to buy some of this just so I can cold brew it. That said I probably won’t as it always did a funny thing to my throat, made it feel all dry and filmy, I wonder if that would be different not using the hot water. I always wanted to like this tea, unfortunately there’s no way to go in and get a cup of cold brewed tea from the store.

Hello!

I’m Ian and I’m a 15 year old student who lives in Vermont. I started (heavily) drinking tea in Late 2010 and have been obsessed ever since!

I tend to drink more black and herbal teas, though I do enjoy oolong, green, and white, and I’m exploring other facets of the tea world (I’m still trying with pu-erh!)

I tend to lean towards sweeter and fruity flavors in my teas, and I’m not a big fan of smoky flavored teas, or anything that’s VERY bold.

I also enjoy a cup of coffee every once and a while, though it does mess with my stomach sometimes so I don’t drink it as often as I drink tea.

In addition to tea drinking, I’m also really interested in:
Classical music (I’ve been playing clarinet for 5 years now and it’s my favorite thing to do), independent arts/music, education on environmental sustainability, reading, Fair Trade and safe-trade practices, Cognitive science, art history, and a lot more.

I’m open to swaps, but I don’t have a very wide collection. Regardless, if I review a tea and you would like a sample, feel free to message me and we can work something out! If you would like to just try something without a swap, feel free to ask too! I know that I personally don’t have a lot of teas to swap and if you’re in the same position as me just feel free to ask for a sample and I’ll send you some, no strings attached!

I run a blog on TeaTrade which you can find here: http://serendipitea.teatra.de/. The goal of my blog is to better connect tea with the arts and go beyond just the taste aspect of tea. Enjoy!
