First cold brew attempt and may I just say, holy cup of yummy tartness! This tea is nearly perfect, although not terribly tea-y. Great alternative to sugary lemonades. Added a touch of splenda (well, generic splenda) just to cut the tartness a bit.

Very refreshing and the mate caffiene is a nice addition, especially during long, boring meetings.

Could use a bit more tea in there, but other than that it’s nearly perfect. Easy to cold brew too.

There’s no tea in it. It’s a mate herbal infusion, and herbals rarely steep well the second time. I like adding Silver Yin Zhen Pearl to it, it’s an excellent subtle white tea that takes well to a five minute brew. If you’re interested, I could send you a small sample. Just shoot me a PM.
