Whatever they want! I drink diet coke or teas we’ve already tried.
Tuesday and Thursday are for testing 1 new tea. After the test, we sometimes brew a pot of one we’ve liked in the past.
We actually have 3 kettles, 2 teapots, and 1 pitcher. Mostly we use the kettle to heat the water, then brew the tea in the cast iron teapot.
We have full-sized cups, but I pour about 2 oz for each person.
For testing days, we normally brew 32 oz (that’s how much the cast iron teapot holds). If people really like it, we sometimes brew a second run of the same tea. On other days, I brew anywhere between 1-3 pots throughout the day.
Yes! We’ll let you guys know what we do closer to then.
@Cythwulf I guess the AMA did not specify when it might be answered I will be watching…
I am enjoying the reviews but next tea question…how do you pick which tea is next from that good looking selection? I like going to OOTG and browsing the tea selection for something new. I go with mood, suggestions and “what are you drinking, I’ll have that one”.
I suppose it’s only fair that I share something: I can’t catch fast-moving objects coming at me. All the time growing up, I just figured I was a klutz, because I could throw things fairly accurately. When I was 18 or 19 an eye doctor discovered one of my eyes is a little off needing a corrective prism in my glasses. Turns out my brain was confused about which fast-moving object to catch.
Uh…I cheated on a health class test once in junior high. There was a brochure (STD, general health info) under my desk on the floor so I opened it with my feet like a ninja and used it some of for answers. Also the teacher at the time was one of the phys ed teachers. Sorry.
Well, when I was about 9 or 10 years old I was kicked out of an AOL chatroom for using curse words. Someone was talking smack about *NSYNC and I cursed them out. The admins emailed my parents with screenshots
@therealjrn I am banned from all Spencers Gifts for stealing stickers in Woodfield Mall in the ummmm … years ago. They assured me my photo would be in every single store. My many Funko Pop figurines and T-shirts from over the years would beg to differ on me being banned.
@therealjrn Oof, more of a nightmare. It’s a mansion type place with a lot of hatches and escape routes. The place is huge and changes constantly. It’s a wild ride whenever I have it. Usually something is chasing me, never know what. 10/10 would make a great horror flick.
@riskybryzness@themutilator Actually that’s one thing I can’t stand LOL - I don’t like salty/sweet things… however, if I get a dessert, I have to eat it side by side with my meal. I just can’t mix the two within the same bite.
@sammydog01 The last peach tea I had was too much peach. It was a cheapie brand but it still pushed me away from peach. This tea is really mellow and light tasting. It is mostly a black tea with hints of the apricot.
Hey guys, broke down and ordered some Peaches&Coconut Iced Tea Bags from Market Spice out in Seattle. Nice smell and flavor, but I think the coconut creme flavoring seems to overpower rather than compliment the peach. My favorite iced tea is still their Cinnamon Orange Spice. One of my old Navy Shipmates tells me he thinks it tastes like Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, without the headache the next morning. Send me an address and I will send some of the Peaches&Coconut to add to your testing samples (I guess I’d throw in some Cinnamon Orange Spice if you would like to sample that as well, let me know.) They both come in 2 Quart bags,
