Iced Coff-tea



In some coffee perusing, I ran across this odd recipe for an iced coffee and iced tea hybrid. Granted summer is almost over, but it's something to give a try before the heat leaves altogether.

I would think most coffee/tea combos could produce a decent product, but I would avoid using very distinct teas (such as the smoky Lapsang Souchong) or a coffee that's over-roasted (but you don't need Cup of Excellence coffee to make a good iced coffee).

I enjoy a good Lapsang Souchong.

I was wondering what kind of tea did you used to make your iced tea-coffee hybrid?

Lo, I never actually tried this out but I would fathom a nice floral coffee coupled with an herbal tea (something with some bright notes) might produce a refreshing cofftea.

But if you have both good iced coffee and good iced tea, why bother mixing?
