This is my daytime cold tea now. With the leaves from the first hot steeps I made cold steep, and this is unsweetened because how could I ever? It is too good just like this.

I think there is almost no beverage more refreshing on a hot day than cold puerh. It is thirst quenching like cold water, but the mineral and earthy flavors make it so much more satisfying and somehow it tastes purer than water to me. Since this is made from leaves that were already steeped to make hot tea, the caffeine content should be low enough that it won’t keep me up tonight, but I will be switching to only decaf/caffeine free options from here on this evening.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
