So I have had a bit left in my sample pack of this, so I decided to cold brew it. Did it for about 24 hours, and it is pretty good! The veggie flavors definitely come out a lot more in the cold brew, particularly the peas and corn. This is actually super satisfying and refreshing, it’s a bit heavier it seems, so a bit more staying power, but refreshing enough with the light peach flavor and fresh vegetables. This was a nice experiment, and I will probably cold brew the rest of my sample as well! See previous notes on this tea, brewed hot :)

Honestly, I cannot imagine vegetable flavored tea!

Lol yeah it does seem strange, I was definitely picturing something salty, but it’s more like fresh garden peas than a soup..the peach flavor is also the most prominent when hot brewed, so that takes away from the veggie-ness. Definitely a different mix of ingredients though!

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
