Sipdown #43

I’ve made this tea a few ways recently. I hot brewed it and then poured it over ice. It was okay that way. Not nearly as flavorful as I remember it being from past experiences. Then I re-steeped the same leaves in cold water. I’m not gonna’ lie. I kind of forgot I was cold steeping this one for about 4 days or so. It just sat in the refrigerator.

I took the leaves out and then left the pitcher in the fridge for about a month or two…I’m not joking. I just completely forgot about it! Well, I broke out the pitcher today and was surprised to find it’s actually really yummy! LOL! I think I even like it better cold-brewed and forgotten about than hot-brewed and enjoyed right away. Both versions were enjoyed iced, but the “mistake” turned out incredibly delicious!

It’s a light fruity tea with the white base shining through nicely. The flavors even cut right through my lunch of leftover pepperoni pizza. Who knew? I’ve enjoyed this one, but I’m happy to say so long. I think this is the third 52teas I’ve ever sipped down. I am really hoarding them. So, this is a very hard-earned sipdown!

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
