Did a quick rinse of the leaves, and cold brewed 6 grams of this tea in 750 ml. water for around 12 hours.

I think next time I will go for around 9 or 10 hours instead of 12 – I was worried this wasn’t long enough (it’s a very pale liquor) but it is way stronger than I anticipated! It was overwhelming on my tongue, but in a good way – the peach and nutty flavors rushed at me simultaneously and finished with a surprisingly smoky astringence (another reason why I think I might have gone too long in the brewing process). The aftertaste is very peachy and it lingers for quite awhile after the sip is finished – it is fantastic! Quite refreshing as an iced tea – which is good because I love having iced tea.

So glad I got this at such a huge discount – it makes me feel like I can justify cold brewing such a special tea!

Preparation

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
