This came my way via a survey I took for The Persimmon Tree Tea Co. as a thank you gift. (Love their smallest tins – too cute!) To take a saying that my husband likes to use: If it’s free, its for me!

This rounds out the 3 teas I tried cold brewing. To be fair, I have yet to try this as a hot brew so I’m not sure if it will taste different when made the traditional way.

First off, I followed the usual 1.5 tsp of leaf per 8 oz cup and brewed this for over 24 hours – longer than I meant to keep the leaves in.

This has a much more pronounced green tea flavor than I was expecting! It’s mostly green tea with a hint of tart pomegranate. The other cold brews I had (neither of which were from The Persimmon Tree) were more fruit-forward with a hint of tea base flavor.

Finding this out now does make me a tad nervous to try the hot brew on this one, but it doesn’t deter me from doing it either. I’ll try that at a later time.

Iced 8 min or more

I’m a native Midwesterner (Iowa, specifically) who was happily uprooted to California twice. SoCal is what I consider home, even though I currently don’t live there. I hope to return home again!

Tea has really come to fill the void of my current displacement. My husband & I (with our two tiny weenies) moved to Indiana hardly knowing a soul. It’s been a tougher transition for me than I’d thought it would be. I have amassed a cupboard of teas to keep me company until I feel more familiar in my newer surroundings.

I will refrain from giving numerical values to teas because I am a faddist. My likes and dislikes are constantly changing. Flavored blacks are what I gravitate to the most. Having said that, I do enjoy a wide variety of teas – you name it, I’ll try it. I may not like it today, but I might revisit it later and love it.

Flavor note: I prefer my teas to be bold in flavor. I am starting to come around to drinking tea without additives. But I do like to dirty my tea with rock sugar/simple syrup and sometimes with half-n-half/milk. Unflavored greens are unsweetened, but flavored greens I usually add rock sugar. Lately I have been favoring flavored guayusa and matés.
