This has been cold steeped in my fridge with ice cold filtered water for 3-4 hours now. It’s produced a dark red colour so I’m going to risk serving it. Usually for fruit teas I would steep them over night but it’s a hot day and I require iced tea. Now not later.
So yes it’s a dark red colour and has a slight fruity and spicy scent.
Alright it does taste synthetically strawberry, like gummy sweets, but with a spicy undercurrent (like cardamom pod) with a citrus kick. Not as tart as I was expecting thankfully.
Strawberry, cardamom, orange, cinnamon and sugar. That pretty much does the whole taste sensations that I experience with this iced tea, but even after all of those it’s still missing something. Real depth and fresh flavour could be it. Plus wtf is egg protein doing in this tea? A preservative of the fruit?
Overall it beats having a dry throat but is certainly not something I would buy again. Another tea I can tick off my list to try. :)
