All I want is a citrus tea that’s ice-able…
So, yesterday I went into DAVIDsTEA with a list, since without one I get overwhelmed very quickly but the sheer number of teas I have not tried. I wanted (more) Jolly Jellybean, Amaretto, and some La La Lemon (to be iced). The sales-girl helping me recommended this tea instead of La La Lemon, since apparently that tea tends to get pretty bitter.
Now, the last time I tried this tea was the summer of last year and my opinion wasn’t very high: “…not really my thing. I think it might be the oolong? Or maybe the harsh lemon? Either way, it wasn’t smooth enough to really grab me.” BUT I’d only tried it in-store, so maybe brewing it at home would make a difference.
I cold-brewed it in my fridge: 1L of previously boiled (mine was lukewarm) water + 5g Citron Oolong + place pitcher in fridge overnight. The end product was… alright. A bit too floral for my taste, so I added extra lime + agave.
Any recommendations on a nice, citrus-y ice-able tea? Or should I just stick with Red Rose suntea + lemon?
