The last time I made a note about this tea, Tabby commented that it is great iced. So I thought I better try it iced before I decided to get rid of it. I don’t really have much left anyway, I sent most of it out on the GCTTB.
I brewed this one up 2 tsp for 1 cup water for 2 minutes. Then poured over a 20oz mug filled with ice. Added 1.5tsp of white sugar and then cooled in the fridge.
I actually wasn’t as horrible iced as it was hot. (This one is not good when you brew it hot, then let it cool). So whatever it is about the chemical reaction, or whatever, when it is made from more of a concentrate, it is better. Still get a very strong floral, perfumey and chemical taste, but it is very blunted. Drinkable as a flavoured tea.
After I drank some down, I filled the top 1/3 of the mug with carbonated water and voila! Even better. The carbonated water either blunts or hides some of the perfumey taste. I probably have enough of this left to make a full pitcher of iced tea. I think I will be able to drink it down that way.
