I’ve been keeping jugs of various teas in my fridge, now that summer has finally come along, though they’ve mostly been herbals and the like. I keep trying to get my wife to taste them, and she does, and then she tells me she doesn’t like iced tea. Fair enough, gonna be a long summer without it for her. I can’t imagine drinking hot tea in the summer.
We stopped in DavidsTea the other day to drop off a resume and try some Jungle Ju Ju, and this was the tea of the day…iced. My wife takes one sip and says “Ooooh, this is really good iced.”
So, this is my new jug-o-iced-tea in our fridge. I’m drinking the leftover bit from the teapot I brew it in, it won’t all fit in the jug (I have a 1.5 L teapot that I brew one pot of tea in, pour it into the jug, and then make another pot with the same leaves. This second steep usually leaves about a liter of tea behind, which is what I’m drinking now). It is delicious. I can really taste the almond in this cup, and it’s not a bad thing, it mixes well with the peach. I think this tea and I will have a good relationship this summer.
