drank Pineapple Barley Tea by Lupicia
1010 tasting notes

My apologies to Canadian Steepsterites – I honestly had not known about the hundreds of wildfires you’re dealing with until the smoke started wafting its way down the east coast. So, first and foremost, sending wishes for your health and safety and that of your loved ones!

Even with the windows closed and a filter on, the smoke is getting notably stronger, so hot tea doesn’t feel particularly desirable at the moment. Thankfully, I had this cold brew going in the fridge. I’m not sure whether I’ve ever cold-brewed it before, but it works well. Three teabags in a large pitcher turned out to be the right ratio for a roasty, almost toasted buckwheat-esque tea with a delicate pineapple flavor.

Is THAT why we got the air quality alerts all the way down here in NC today? I am so sorry to hear that.
