Had a lovely cup of this tea this morning with my breakfast of pancakes! I didn’t realize it, but I accidentally cold brewed this tea overnight. I made a cup last night, started to make another, and put the steeper in the fridge on autopilot immediately after. The resulting tea smelled heavenly, so into a mug it went.
WOW. When this tea is cold, its like eating a delicious ice cream pop. The vanilla sweetness is there, but much lighter on the palate. Like the most expensive ice cream, homemade and decadent. And the lavender comes forward substantially, to balance the shift in the vanilla. The smokiness is toned down, and the floral note, with a lovely vibrance, is what comes through. The mouthfeel of the tea was silky and refreshing. Absolutely will prepare it in this fashion again!
I managed to pick up another 4 oz of this over the weekend, as DavidsTEA marked it down even more substantially. I just couldn’t resist. So glad I won’t run out of this anytime soon! My next test with this blend will be a tea latte. Will report back.
