I’ve been making this iced, according to the following process:

1. Brew tea, extra strong. ~1.5 times as much leaves in 2/3 as much water.
2. Pour tea into stainless steel water bottle, add sugar.
3. Shake vigorously under cold running faucet. This cools it in just a minute.
4. Add milk (~1/2 the volume of the brewed tea) and then ice.

It’s pretty tasty, and very refreshing on a hot day. I recommend it – whether with this tea, another black tea, or a cooked pu-er.

I use Steepster to log new teas, and don’t generally post unless I try a new tea, or discover something new about an old one. I went on a huge tea buying binge when I discovered Steepster, and have been living off of that since then – so I’ve had little to write about. I’m hoping to get some new tea for my birthday, which is almost here. Then I will have more to write.

On a side note, I’ll be moving to Boston in the fall. Any Steepsterites have a favorite tea place there?

I work as a web coder guy. I eat primal/paleo; I love math, science, gaming, and of course tea. I’ve been drinking tea since I was 3! I started with looseleaf in 2004 and have had lots of fun trying all sorts of new things since then.

I mostly drink black tea, and that usually with milk and sugar. I also enjoy, in more or less descending order:

cooked puers
rooibos, lighter greens, oolongs
whites, raw puers
some other herbals
darker greens
