Made a pitcher of iced Yunnan. Interesting, but not as good as hot Yunnan. It has a sort of tangy/sweet taste, but there’s also a sort of dry bitterness.

Made a pitcher of iced Super-Blue. It’s pleasant, but I think it’s better hot. (Although, the shiny little beetle I found in the buds while I was steeping may have soured my perception.)

Finished this off by making an iced pitcher. Good hot, good cold. The cinnamon taste seems more suited to hot, but when made cold it’s pleasantly tasty.

Made an iced pitcher of this tea. I’m not sure if I prefer it iced, compared to hot, but it’s good either way.

Tried it iced. The flavor remains pretty constant regardless if it’s iced or hot.

Made a pitcher and finished this off. Personally, I find white tea better iced than hot and this tea is no exception.

I took this iced and the flavor translates pretty well. Certainly it’s somewhat sweeter, but usually an iced tea (for me) is somewhat less strong than a hot tea. In this case the tea comes across pretty similar between the two methods.

I tried this iced. It’s interesting. Much more bitter than I expected, but not too bitter or unpleasant.

Well I’m not crazy about it, but I was curious. I do very very much enjoy anything slightly sassafrass-y and this makes a respectable tea. I haven’t tried it hot, but if you make it cold you have to make it much stronger.
