It being so hot here in the desert, I drink a lot of iced tea. It breaks up the monotony of just water and it’s an excuse to drink more tea!
This is one of my favorites for iced tea. It’s uncomplicated, consistent and very smooth.
The vanilla in this tea holds up very well in both fragrance and taste. There’s just enough to round off any lingering bitterness that may have snuck into the green tea through imperfect brewing. If the glass gets watered down a bit, the tea flavor dissipates and you’re left with something that resembles a watery cream soda. However, a glass rarely lasts long enough to reach this point.
An important iced prep note- make it stronger by using more tea leaves. Keep the steep time short and water temperature low.
