I originally wrote this note a month ago but deleted that note and put it up again to reflect the actual tea after updating my cupboard *

Today I cold steeped a blend of two teas from Teavana – Java Vana Maté and Cococaramel sea salt (herbal).

I did a taste test at 4 hours and then strained the rest into a 16 oz glass at 7 hours.

The verdict? I am never steeping this hot ever again :) Though I don’t think I’ll let it go over 6 hours next time.

Sip by sip this tea greets you with a heavy roasted flavor followed by strong cocoa notes. A sweet hint of caramel finishes off the flavor.

I’m going to give this a tentative 70. It’s tasty but it’s also a little rough on the acid right now. I’m going to experiment with the steep time in the future. I’m thinking I’ll end up with a happy medium between 4 and 6 hours.

Flavors: Caramel, Cocoa

Iced 8 min or more

Why hello, you’ve found my profile…what a crazy, random happenstance!

I’m a tea loving, karaoke rocking, accounting studying gal obsessed with teddy bears, the color red and, oh yes, tea ;)
