This is another tea from my sipdown drawer. I’ve been cold brewing this one because it didn’t really blow me away as a hot tea. Anyway, I think the key with cold brewing this one is not to overleaf and not to let it steep for too long or else the bitterness is unforgiving. I steeped a bit less than a tablespoon in my water bottle overnight and it turned out light and lovely with floral and vegetal notes. I kind of gulped down the entire thing because I wanted to get that caffeine going in my system, but I think I overdid it with both this tea and the morning cuppa cause now I’m a bit jittery. And I’m sure my anxiety from my upcoming meeting today is not helping.
Ok, back on track, I just wanted to write this tasting note to remind myself, less leaf, less time in the fridge! I’m terrible at keeping track of how long my cold brews have been sitting, and some teas are great at being ignored, but this one is not one of them!
