Once again, I’m attempting to make some Iced tea, still attempting to get iced tea the way my host mother made it. I steeped this hot (30 sec, with boiling water) and then waited for it to cool and stuck it in the fridge.

The roast smell still is there, and this is pretty similar tasting to the iced tea that my host mother in japan made. The taste is very good. A little nutty and the roasted flavor is coming out. The roasted flavor is almost a little too strong for me, but this was definitely a successful attempt at iced tea. I should try this method for other teas. I just think this tea works as an iced version very well. I don’t really even want to try it hot!

Bio

Daily tea drinker.

Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there is a cup of tea in my hands. I love all teas, but white and oolong are my favorites. I tend to find one tea and drink it every day until I run out (or get sick of it).

There’s not much variety in what I drink, so tasting notes are few and far inbetween. I try to log every tea I drink at least once… and if I spend to much time perusing the many teas all you lovely people drink I would surely go broke trying to drink them all.
