Trying to clean out my tea cupboard a bit, and the best way to do that is to make iced tea since it uses so much leaf. My Teavana stuff is getting on in age, so I’m trying to work through that. I figure there isn’t much time left this season for iced tea and I was thirsty today, so iced tea it is.

I would have brewed an entire glass of Sevenberry Sangria but only had half the amount of tea needed, so I used High Grown English Breakfast Tea as well (it’s a basic, unflavoured black; I figured that should be safe). I think I should have used much less Breakfast Tea or a different mix tea entirely. The Sevenberry Sangria is bright and fruity (this one makes a pretty decent iced tea on its own, like I said) and the Breakfast Tea just added an awful bitterness to it. Maybe a plain white or green would have been better here, but I didn’t have anything like that.
I added 2 heaping teaspoons of agave (!) and it’s drinkable, but it’s definitely got a nasty bitterness to it.

I hot steeped this and poured it over ice, which could also be why the black tea is more bitter.

And with that, I’m finished my bag of Sevenberry Sangria.
