Made up a half gallon of this iced – steeped 4 tsp. in 4 cups of leaves, then resteeped in another 4 cups to get that half gallon. Added some honey to sweeten.

This is not bad iced – it certainly tastes very much like the pineapple and coconut shavings that were in it. The honey nicely sweetens and compliments the tea (I cannot put granulated sugar in a green tea – it just…seems wrong) and it is very refreshing.

I’m not sure I can drink this with meals, though – it seems more of a stand alone beverage. Luckily it’s getting hot enough that I’ll be needing something to keep cool in the afternoons…

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

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. "
