I’d entirely forgotten about this… I finally managed to try this iced!
And yes, it was indeed quite yummy. It tastes even more like gelato this way :)
Of course, I still prefer it hot.
Now, do I want to repurchase this? Kindof. I only purchased a sample size. It is not an essential for me, but then I really really like this one. Only… I promised myself that until I make a sizable dent in my already enormous supply, I shan’t purchase any more tea :(

I know what you mean! I am also learning that I need to purchase two small tins from somewhere that I can use as “travel tins” because I keep taking tea to work and forgetting it there over the weekend! GASP!

I want more of this, but it is a green tea thus not a huge favourite

lol I hear ya. I’ve got two workplaces! so rather than try and cart them around, I tend to keep a separate stash at every place I frequent (home, and work). Now that I have my kettle, and can actually brew tea at my second job, it should be interesting to see if that arrangement still works!

oh and yeah… except Dragonwell, and the coconut green from teaopia, I don’t enjoy green as much as I want to

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
