Cold brewed 1/2 gallon today for 6.5 hours, using 8 level tsp. tea.

I wanted something fruity and iced today – and this was a great choice, especially the steep time used. The liquor is a pale green and the scent/taste is very strawberry. The green tea taste that is present is more toward the back of the sip, but it is grassy and sweet, with no astringency whatsoever.

A nice choice for what will likely be my last cold brew for a while.

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. "
