Summertime, and the cold-brewing is easy

Virginia "Cinnabar" Wright, who is's Seattle Tea Examiner and who also blogs as Gongfu Girl, reminds us that cold-brewing your green tea is not only "staggeringly simple" but also brings out different characteristics in your tea than when brewed hot.

This is so true. Even a tea that you thought you knew intimately can taste like a completely different tea when brewed cold. In fact, such complexity is the sign of a high-quality tea. (Hint, hint.)

Iced green tea we made in Aso.

Yummy! An iced green tea party sounds like an excellent idea right now — or any time, for that matter.
