Alright so I hate this warm but think I have finally found the only way I will ever enjoy this. Cold steeping. I decided to give this tea one last try and thought maybe cold steeping it over night in the fridge might save me from the taste of this. It worked! The tea is slightly sweet, floral, and peachy with no astringency. I thought about adding sugar to it but there is enough natural sweetness that it tastes fine without. Love it this way.

With few exceptions (none of which I can think of right now) I prefer fruit teas cold, too.

Good idea!

What was your ratio (cups/tsps)? I am thinking about doing this regularly as well, but every time I try to cold steep, it comes out really bland.

I don’t know the exact amount I use but it’s something like 12tsp for a 46oz pitcher of water and then I usually let it cold steep for around at least 2 days before tasting it.

Bio

Well, to start, my name is Matt. I got into loose leaf tea my sophomore year in college. I was drinking some lipton tea in my room when I started thinking to myself that there has to be something more then just bagged tea. So I decided to do a web search and found out about loose leaf (you would think that this would have been an obvious thing but surprisingly it was not). I stumbled across a local tea cafe called Argo tea and decided to try it out. Long story short, I fell in love. From this one store I have started to branch out to all different types of tea from several different stores.

My favorit tea is very hard to choose since I like pretty much everything there is that I have tried. I have recently started getting into pu’erh teas, which is getting to be interesting. I am always looking for new a greater tastes when it comes to tea and am trying to better express my experiences with tea.

Aside from tea I am an actor in the Chicago area. I do mostly theatre and various film projects through out the Midwest. I recently started doing Voiceover work, which I have to say is very fun and easy going.

My number ratings are more random then anything. Since I have no idea half the time when I move the slider on the happy face meter what number will be showing up.
