Last summer, the store where my wife works had a tons of boxes of this, the English Breakfast, and the Earl Grey. They didn’t sell well and went on crazy discount, so she brought them all home to me. I was so excited. I love me some cold tea. Well, I still had quite a few boxes left at the end of summer, so I stuffed them into the back of the pantry and forgot about them.

Fast forward to this summer. None of the places where I work give me access to a kettle and I’m running around so much that I really just want something cold to drink. I’ve taken to trying to remember to make a pot of tea the night before and chilling it overnight so I’ll have some in the morning, but I’ve been beyond exhausted when I get home and it just slips my mind. These have become a lifesaver. It takes 2-3 bags to put some actual flavor into the tea, but I’m also using a 24 oz camelbak. Still, I love it. It’s not as amazing as it was to me last summer, I still prefer looseleaf teas chilled overnight, but when faced with bagged tea vs. soda or crystal light or plain water, I’m going to reach for bagged tea.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
