It’s overcast and foggy today, so you would think it would finally be a day for tea… Sadly the wind is warm and super strong (it blew the magnets of the fridge earlier), so iced tea it is!
I followed brewing instructions from the Harney US website, as the NZ Harney’s instructions are lacking and confusing [US says one pouch= 1 gallon of tea (3.78 Liters), NZ says one pouch= 1 Liter (0.26 gallons). Hmmmm…]
I steeped 2 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes (at which point it tasted really bitter and I was afraid I had overstepped it) and then mixed in around 6 cups of cold. Now it doesn’t taste bitter at all and I wish that I had steeped it longer for a stronger taste. I ended up making just over 3 Liters worth (under a gallon) due to bottle size constraints. Overall, I’m quite confused as to how much water I should have used due to the contradictions. Anyone know?
