Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge, June 2022: An iced/cold brew tea
I only ever cold steeped this in the fridge for 5-8 hours. First batch was more astringent and collard greens than I generally like it but the second batch I’m currently finishing off balanced the veggies with a good dose of canned peach and dry ginger notes. Not a large amount of heat to the ginger but its zesty earthiness is pleasant enough.
As always, the canned peaches take me down memory lane.
Very refreshing, although there isn’t much need for refreshments here right now. The Northwest Coast is deeply committed to a wet spring and mild temperatures this year. Overcast a few days before Summer Solstice. Hope it doesn’t rain for my upcoming six day camp/hike next week, but it probably will.
Flavors: Asparagus, Astringent, Earthy, Ginger, Kale, Peach, Stewed Fruits
