I got this tea on sale a while ago. I had tried one bag the way it was instructed on the box — brew hot, then chill — but didn’t really catch on due to the overpowering flavor of the citrus. I picked this up yesterday and decided to do a cold brew.

To be honest, I learned how to cold brew coffee and have just kind of moved on to tea in the same way, so I’m not really sure if I’m doing it correctly. I guess it doesn’t matter, because I’m kind of fond of the outcome. The cold brew version of this tea is actually really nice. The tea base is surprisingly warm for an iced tea, and the citrus is bright and engaging. I think the best part is how it looks when the bag is opened up — the mix is really eye-catching (partly because the citrus ‘zest’ is more like ‘rind’, but that’s ok — I like it like that).

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.
