Homemade iced tea is remarkably simple to make. Unlike store bought versions - that often contain more sugar and colourings than anything that’s actually come from the Camellia Sinensis plant - natural iced tea can be just as sweet, with an amazing depth of flavour yet, is calorie free and contains all the health benefits of freshly brewed tea. I drink cold brewed iced tea all year round. It makes for an amazingly refreshing drink, can be used as a great base for cocktails, and I even make deserts with it (try using it instead of sherry in a summer fruit’s trifle). Over the summer I perhaps drinking as much iced tea as I do hot!Cold brewing goes completely against the British institution that is ‘freshly boiled water must be used when preparing tea!’ As most tea lovers know, boiled water is not always the friend of delicate the loose leaf. Certain types of tea do require a cooler water temperature lest they turn bitter - the reason so many people claim not to like green tea.

Review
I know I said that I said that I would do the Loki review first, but I just got a glass teapot recently and I thought the best way to fully utilize it would be to make a blooming tea. So I promise that the Loki review will be next. In case you guys are wondering why I’m using a different cup, my green mug tragically broke. It fell from the shelf and split clearly down the middle. It was kind of cool looking but I was too busy sobbing to take a picture. It’s been a while since I’ve actually had tea as well, so it was kind of exciting to steep tea again. I’ll be posting some iced tea reviews as it gets hotter. Steeped for 5 minutes and served immediately.
In pellet form, the tea smells just like a normal black tea. It has that leafy scent along with a bit of almost a chocolate undertone. While steeping, the air became filled with the strong scent of tea. I was almost worried that the tea would be too strong haha. The tea had a very faint chocolate like smell afterwards. Since I had too much in the pot, it actually cooled overnight. When I opened the lid again, the chocolate smell overpowered me.
For a tea that smelled like it could be extremely bitter, it was surprisingly light and fresh. While it didn’t really pack much of a caffeine punch, it went down extremely nicely. It had a nice chocolate undertone that was a pleasant sweet factor. That being said, the most disappointing part of steeping this tea was the fact that the flower didn’t actually open fully. Also, I could see how this tea being so light in flavor would bother someone. Honestly, I was expecting more from it. Normally I would rate this tea 4 stars, but the bloom not opening has made me deduct one star from the rating. Probably one of the first lackluster teas I’ve had from Adagio.
