My normal routine has been making a pitcher of tea which I can get three 12oz mugs of tea from to take with me to school. I only take one 12oz mug a day with me... so, doing the math, the pitcher of tea is in the frig for 2-3 days.
Now here is my problem. I made a pitcher of Kukicha on Sunday. I ended up having 12oz of it that same day. However, by Tuesday, the last 12oz or so that I had left in the pitcher was very cloudy. I remember reading that some teas cloud so I thought this was normal, poured me a mugful, and walked out the door.
When I started to drink the tea... it was very weak. It did not taste like what I had drank on Sunday and Monday. I continued to drink it, though, but once I got to the bottom of the container, it was very strong and bitter.
I have searched around this forum (and also google) to find out what I could about Kukicha... managing only to discover that you guys really love the stuff! Heh heh... So I'm hoping you will help me out with my question. Is Kukicha only good if drunk immediately or at most a day after? If so, are there other teas that are the same way?
I guess I need to do some more research on clouding, but I would definately appreciate the help.
You guys rock!
