Phoenix Honey Oolong comes from ancient trees on Phoenix Mountain, revered for centuries as a connoisseur's tea. We wondered during a recent visit how the tea would fare with cold steeping, a practice unheard-of by the locals, and commissioned some to be made. The result was one of the finest cold brew teas we’ve ever tasted—not at all astringent, with a seamless liqueur of mildly spiced honey whose piquant aroma brilliantly survived the cold.

Raise a cup in a triumphant toast to trying something new.

Cold Brew tea preparation: Place one or two sachets in a half-gallon container of cool filtered water. Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 6-8 hours. Steep longer for a stronger tea.
