YAY!
I have been wanting to get a tea to cold steep for the summer, but most teas would end up costing an arm and a leg to make them strong and flavourful for making large amounts of. With all you wonderful Steepsters drinking this up like crazy I had to track some down!
I put 1.5 tablespoons in warm water, then stuck it in my fridge for a while (4+ hrs). The results? Delicious! I am so very happy I found this. Sweet green tea taste with a nice toasted flavour. Staple for summer! I just hope it shows up sooner than later as it’s been raining cats and maybe dogs, but definitely cats, for way too long.

EDIT: Alright, so I’ve had at least 4 cups of this in half an hour. My stomach is so full, but I can’t stop drinking it >.<

I know! There is no way I could pass up tracking some down to try after the raves about it from you and Incendiare =)

It really is addictive! On the plus side, no calories and it’s good for you.

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
