Sipping an iced glass after work, lightly sweetened. No lime slice this time. I sort of burned myself out on it for a while.

I also wanted to welcome Zij-Ra to Steepster. Follow her, guys, she knows what she’s talking about. Anyway, she and her man, Kevin, were over yesterday and we made this tea iced with chunks of fresh lychee. We added the nut-fruits (fruit-nuts?) to the hot water, where they sort of infused with the tea and vice versa. The result was a little stronger Ceylon-y than I intended, but still delicious. The raspberry flavor held strongest, but the lychee added a certain exotic flavor. I would definitely do this again. Makes me wonder what other things I could infuse it with…

Preparation
Iced 4 min, 45 sec

I need to acquire more Lychee; my mind is swirling with ideas.
Thanks for the warm welcome! :D

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
