I made this as an iced tea with the remaining tablespoon of the Harney Earl Grey Supreme /Teavana Orange Youthberry and the Kitchen Sink ;) It’s just ok in my opinion (my husband likes it more than I do). I think it’s a little too bitter, even though I brewed the iced tea with water around 195 and only for 3 minutes. I love a touch of bitterness in an iced tea – I think it’s really refreshing – but this was more than a touch.
I am not going to give up on the idea of using this in an iced tea, though. Instead of using two parts of this Darjeeling and one part of another tea, I’m going to reverse the proportions. Upton has this interesting looking Ceylon Darjeeling blend they say makes good iced tea. I think I’ll get a Ceylon from them, and add this Darjeeling to be a copy cat, 2 parts Ceylon, one part Darjeeling.
I also forgot to put in a pinch of baking soda, and it’s cloudy.
Some days are better tea days than others!
