I’m not going to rate this yet, oh I really am stupid.. it went all wrong!! I made a fresh pot and waited to put the loose tea inside, so I went about downstairs and decided to eat some food and completely forgot about my tea!! So I ran upstairs and threw the tea in the pot… unfortunately, it wasnt even brewing.. saaaaddd… major failure!! I will make this again, PROPERLY.

You could just leave the tea in the water overnight and cold brew it in the fridge. It’s not the same as a hot brew, but it’s still good and you won’t waste tea. :)

I wonder if I could resteep last nights tea?? I dont want to risk it to be honest..

Actually, I do reuse leaves from the night before, but the flavor changes from being wet and oxidizing. So it’s not good if this is your first taste of the tea. Oh well. At leadt now you know about cold brewing. :) it’s how I make iced tea in the summer.

yeah I can’t wait to do that for the summer… I dont want to do that now, its far too cold haha

Hello! I’m a girl living in London tasting tea and reviewing them for everyone! I have a huge passion for tea and find real comfort in it..

I buy tea samples and collect tea. I have a lovely collection that is still growing, it includes mainly loose leaf teas but I do have bagged. If you’d like to trade some teas just PM me and we can send samples to each other which would be lovely..

If any of my ratings are

80-100 – love it, will be buying more.

60-70 – It was good, not amazing, I’ll drink it all.

50-60 – I didn’t like it so much, I won’t buy it again and probably won’t drink it again (unless I have a little faith).

under 40 – I hated it and couldn’t finish the cup.
