We’ve been keeping a box of this in the cabinet for a long time now, and I never reviewed it as a hot tea (that I recall), but what I have been doing lately is steeping it cold, and the results are much better than the hot results.
I put 8 bags into a 3 quart vessel with tepid water, and stash it in the fridge over night.
The result is bright and green and that vegetal quality which is so great in expensive green tea and so lousy in cheap green tea is very muted here.
As I drink through the bottle, I keep adding back water (the tea bags are still in there) and I just keep drinking it down until the results seem to be getting thin, at which point I stop adding water. I probably get a gallon or two of green tea out of these 8 bags.
As refreshing as lemonade or sweet tea, but without the sugar, in Houston’s crushing Summer heat and humidity.
