In re: iced tea

I was listening to a podcast of the Splendid Table a week or so ago and one of the guests was a tea shop owner and tea expert who talked about iced tea, and how to make it. Anyway he converted me to cold brewed (overnight in the fridge) that yields a less tanic / acrid (is that a word ? ). Anyway it has less bite and a softer taste, but you can do it with any tea black, green, white whatever you fancy. He also explained why sun tea is a bad idea (you are putting organic matter in a warm moist environment, couldn’t design a better place for bacteria growth. Anyway with the warm weather we have been having nothing beats some nice cold iced tea (is that redundant?) well except maybe the occasional lemonade. Also don’t get me started on the horrors of sweet tea, one of things I don’t miss about living. In Virgina.
