I used my flash chill iced tea pitcher to make a batch of this a couple of days ago, and I’m just finishing up the last of it now.
I didn’t particularly enjoy the smell of the dry mixture, but I’m glad that I gave it a chance anyway. It’s really good iced. It’s fruity, sweet, and a little bit tart. It reminds me of some frozen fruit drink that I used to like as a kid, though I can’t put my finger on what exactly that drink was. I just know that it was also pinkish in color and delicious.
When I drink this, it’s the melon that I pick up on the most. I was a bit worried that the hibiscus (blech) might make it too tart if over-steeped, but 6 minutes seemed to be just fine.
All in all, a really delicious summer tea.
