Over ice with lunch. To watered down by the end, but tasty to start.

My wife has an issue with caffine, so she trys to limit her intake. This is her concoction and its mmmm..good. Had this with dinner last night. 2 bags of Lipton Berry Green tea with 2 bags of generic decaf tea in a 1 Qt container, pour boiling water to fill the container and let steep at least 5 minutes (more the merrier generally). Pour over liberal amounts of ice for a glass of yummy berry iced tea.

Quick and easy…makes plastic water taste good. A bit sweet for me, but at least its not real sugar.

Last teabag :-( I get a can of this every Christmas and ration it out.
Spicey goodness. A touch of sugar brings out the flavors. The citrus is a bit underwhelming, but this last teabag is 5+ months old…

got some of this from a friend. Steeped 5 minutes to get some color…Very light, not astringent, mild mild mild, even after 5 minutes of steeping. Knowing that tea IS flavored water, this is just flavored water….
I’ll try this one again in the future just to make sure it wasn’t a bad day.

Ok, yes, I’m running through my library of tea. This is something completely different from my usual fare. 1 1/2 teaspoons in a 2 cup pot. Steeped 3-4 minutes. Light straw color. Fresh mowed grass smell. Light, tannic, cleansing in the mouth. Best drank hot…as it cools the tannins seem to become overwhelming. A little reheat and its good to go.

An excellent Ceylon. Dark rust red, just a hint of tannins. Good hot, gets better as it cools. I actually like this one when its down to room temp…seems to bring out the tannins a bit more.

VERY expansive when brewed. One teaspoon will expand to fill a 1/3 cup strainer.
An excellent Earl Grey. Decaffination hasn’t seemed to take any of the flavor, and of course double bergamot is never a bad thing, is it?
This is a good late night treat.

2nd infusion – decidely weaker. Woodsy flavor. Definitely overbrewed the the first cup, leaving nothing notable for a second. (Edit: I take that back, once it cooled down enough to get a full mouthful, the flavor was there. Much lighter than the first cup. Definitely overbrewed the first cup!)

This more for completeness….
I drink this, with a dollop of honey and a slice of real lemon, whenever I start to get a sore throat. Call it psychology or whatever, but it makes me feel better and I swear it makes the sore throat go away faster!

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
