Brewing Loose Iced Tea Video

Brewing Loose Iced TeaRecently I wrote about making a fast glass of loose iced tea. It is such a great method to cool off, during this record heat summer we are having. I'm going through iced tea so very quickly, that a pitcher doesn't last very long in my home.

Anyway I found a video that shows how to make a quick glass of iced tea. This Brewing Loose Iced Tea video is just over a minute long, so won't take long to watch. He uses what appears to be the Teavana Perfect Tea Maker, which is a great option for steeping both hot and iced tea.

You can find some great loose teas from Teavana along with tea making accessories. They are also offering free shipping with a $50 order right now, a great savings to your order.

What is your favorite tea from Teavana? I am a big fan of their herbal and rooibos blends.

Le Palais Gourmet is Now American Tea Room

American Tea Room Your Ultimate Tea ResourceLe Palais Gourmet has been a fixture in Beverly Hills for years.  Recently they have undergone a renovation of sorts, changing their name to better reflect their company.  They are now known as American Tea Room.  There were several reasons for the switch, including an easier name for their customers to remember.  It does not signal a change in their really great tea selection though.

Recently I received some tea samples and they are definitely my new favorite source of loose leaf tea.  The three varieties in our tea cabinet are Immortal Green, Tangier, and St. Tropez.

Immortal Green is a green tea blended with peach.  I have always loved the pairing of tea with peach and this is a really delightful one.  The green tea is a very high quality, the leave unfurl nicely in the water, and the tea is wonderful to drink.

Tangier is a very special black tea blend.  It is Ceylon black tea leaves with saffron and and apricot petals.  Very exquisite.  I could drink this tea all day long, either as a hot tea or an iced tea.

I am a big fan of Rooibos tea.  It is naturally caffeine free, so it is perfect to share with my daughter or the times when I do not want to be kept up late.  St. Tropez is a green Rooibos with red currants, blue mallow blossoms, and a hint of wild berries.  It is a nice fruity tea.  I've tried it hot, but think it would also make a really great iced tea.  I highly recommend this one.

American Tea Room is a great choice for loose leaf tea, tea pots, and other tea accessories.  They even have a selection of teas in pyramid shaped tea bags, perfect when you are on the go.  As they change over from Le Palais Gourmet, they are also having a sale on their teas.  Check them out today and buy some for your tea cabinet.
