This is the tea I keep around to dye textiles, BUT I used 4 of these teabags along with 2 tablespoons of my Earl Grey Melange to make some cold brewed iced tea. It was very good!! The addition of the finer tea plus the cold brew method feature this tea to its best advantage (to be honest, I’ve never had it hot, so for all I know it makes a great cup of hot tea! Feel free to ignore me!!). I will certainly use this again to add a little filler to my iced tea!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

It’s a tea! It’s a textile dye! But wait, there’s more! It’s a ginsu knife!

The tea is a pretty generic bagged orange pekoe; it’s filled with fine-particled tea dust and it doesn’t have much of an odor beyon a bit of the generic tea smell. The tea brewed up quite dark but I found the flavour disapointing. It was quite weak and unremarkable with a very ‘flat’ flavour profile. Maybe it was a mistake to add milk to this, as that seem to be mostly what I’m tasting.

I still stand by my original thoughts from 8 months ago…I donated this to the “office” because it was like $2 for 100 bags…for that I will certainly say it’s a good tea but it’s not gourmet by any means. Still better than no tea – ya know!?

I have this same tea – but I use it to tea dye fabric that is blindingly white for my embroidery :)

Great idea! I actually save my tea bags and dry them out – want to use them for crafts but haven’t made anything from them yet…I should get a move-on tho! I have LOTS piling up! LOL

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I got a bag of (what I’m assuming is) this from the Traveling Tea Box and it’s not bad. It wasn’t marked, so I don’t know for sure if it’s orange pekoe but it’s a black blend. Pretty generic but it does the job… I’m on my second cup of the day so I wasn’t feeling very fancy this go ‘round. I’d say it’s on par with any other basic store-bought black tea blend.

I give this tea on the high end of pretty good, preference definitly as ice tea with a bit of lemon added. It also keeps well on the stomach. I was very sick recently with the flu. I could not eat anything for 10 days, i started drinking the tea hot, it really did help me back up, nothing else would stay down but this tea( i tried others, the name brands, they were either too harsh with flavors, strong, airomatic, this one did it for me).

Basic black tea, really good with milk – staple tea. Not quite as glorious as the english black tea I’ve had from a friend, but still, it works for a basic black tea. :)

I’ve made this as hot and iced tea and it is …ok. I think its much better as a iced tea with peppermint added in.
