drank Oi Ocha by Ito En

Oi Ocha + whole grain Goldfish crackers = a lunch that is at least marginally healthier than Coke & Doritos

Preparation
Iced
Janefan

Oh, I’d like to try that!

How about making your own by steeping some water in a small amount of water to make a concentrate then adding it to coke? Or just adding matcha?

Janefan

Matcha Coke! I think you’re on to something :-)

Cold brewed 2 tbsp in 8oz water overnight. Made a strong and refreshing drink for lunch today. This was the last of this tea. Cold brewing seemed to bring out more balanced flavor, and no bitterness from either the tea or the citrus peels.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Lemon Ginger by Stash Tea Company

woke up with a bit of a stuffy head (it’s probably just the humidity), so I added a couple dashes of cayenne to this tisane. If nothing else, it will wake me up!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

drank Mojito by Blue Raven Tea

a nice change of pace. The citrus/mint combo is refreshing, and it’s just the right bland of sweet but a bit “dry”

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 45 sec

Funny… this is such a positive commentary… then I see the score. :( No rum flavor?

Janefan

that was from the first time I tried it… I will probably bump it up a bit. It’s a good “sometimes” tea but still not one to knock your socks off, or to reach for everyday.

The leaves of this blend look so pretty. I may order a little just to look at them closer. And mojito tea sounds like a great iced tea for this heatwave!

Meghann M – if you PM me your address, I will gladly send you some!

looks like it’s out of stock on BlueRavenTea’s webiste anyway.

Not quite as good as the cup my hubby made me Saturday. Wondering what his ideal ratio of tea/sugar/milk was…

Oddly, last time I said this was my favorite, and not too sweet…

Today I am saying; “this is not my fave of theirs, as it’s a bit too sweet for me, but anyone looking for a Southern Sweet tea alternative would probably like it.”

Sounds great…what were your measurements? I may want to replicate. Thanks!

Janefan

honestly, it was about 3 Tbsp in about 2 cups milk for about 24hrs. But I’m sure it would be fine to halve all those amounts/times. It was a lazy sort of experiment….

Janefan

I was trying to use up the milk. I actually only drank half tonight. It’s hard to say how much flavor was from the milk and how much the tisane, but it did somehow taste thicker and creamier than just the milk alone, which is a bit thin for my tastes. (For the record, it was “So Delicious” brand sweetened vanilla flavored coconut milk)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Great, thank you. If this happened a couple of says sooner I would still have some of that coconut milk left. Oh well, looks like I am buying more soon. :-)
