I’ve been sipping on this coldish steeped style loose in my mason jar with a bombilla.
Fantastic. I get a nice energy boost, and the added bonus is that it tastes delicious
So so so easy. Just pop the leaves in some warm water and top off the water when you run low.
It tastes like a coco-raspberry truffle with an almond center. I really like Chocolate rocket with cooler steeping temperatures… I find it keeps any bitterness away =)

I’m going to have to try a lower temperature next time. I get no raspberry from this. :( Just banana. Roasted mate seems to do that to me. Cool you got a bombilla!

I’m soooo stoked on my bombilla! It’s increased my tea intake by a huge amount! Now I’m looking at mates and guayusas =( the budget hates me.
Oh and for this steeping, I used hot water (1/2 of the container) from the cafeteria and let it steep for about 1 minute, then put ice straight in to fill the remaining 1/2 of the jar. I find the raspberry flavours come out a lot better this way (I found the mate got bitter at higher temperatures).
I’ve also been steeping Red Velvet Cupcake this way and it becomes the most juicy strawberry jam flavoured tea! So good!

Interesting method! I never have ice on me so I never considered doing this. Just now, I boiled some water for a different tea, and will wait for the remaining water to cool off while I drink this tea, and then after, try the Chocolate Rocket with the cooled off water. Let’s see if the banana will still be there!

Mind you, I cold steeped Chocolate Rocket once and it was weeeeeird.

Ahh yes.. I like the hot-to-cold steep.. using hot water first for a minute then popping it in the fridge with cold water (or wandering around with it still brewing in a cup.. and sipping from a bombilla). I really hope it works for you! and that you don’t get banana flavours.

I agree about the natural cold water steeping of Chocolate Rocket.. weird.. just weird.. :I

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.
