I do believe that this is quite possibly the first white tea I’ve ever had as an iced tea. I brewed it much the same as I brew the other successful iced teas I’ve made. I cold steeped it for 7 hours instead of 8, though that was mostly because I wanted to go to sleep, not because I thought it would benefit from the shorter time. It’s quite strong as it is so I’m not regretful. Added the normal amount of sugar that I put in and it’s really quite nice.
Black currant is not my favourite flavour but it’s far from my least favourite and definitely the first time I’ve had it as an iced tea so this is a double novelty. It’s fruity in a strange way and has that sort of sweet that I enjoy but I have difficulty describing as evidenced by the fact that I’ve rewritten this sentence about 8 times in my head before giving up.
I won’t make a resteep because it takes me long enough to drink these things that the bag always gets weird by the time I’m ready to do so and this one is no exception but it was good.
This was the first tea in the 12 iced teas of Christmas that I’m finally getting to, in April.
