(Backlog tea from last week)

I picked up an assortment of teas at the original Twinings shop in London and have been trying to review them all before I forget what they tasted like. This was coldbrewed 5 minutes. It made a great cup of iced tea because I really like ginger/lemon combinations. The ginger was spicewy (just the way I like it!) but the green tea kept things balanced. The green base was not high quality, I think it is just a generic bagged green. With the great spices to help cover the green tea flavour, this was an enjoyable blend to drink.

This is a very tasty blend that tastes quite herbal with the citrus, ginger, and echinacea. The cinnamon isn’t as strong as I expected it to be. The hibiscus was barely noticeable

Do you really get a lot of flavor cold brewing for such a short time? Usually I cold brew for at least 4 hours

Arby

I find 250-500mL of water is best for short brew times. If I wanted to do a jug/larger mug, I’d do longer. I normally just leave the teabag in until I remember it is beside me and drink it. I normally just leave the teabag in while I drink it (except hibiscus blends).

VariaTEA

Good to know. This is something I’ll have to keep in mind.
