Hey, this isn’t bad. When I brewed it hot, I could definitely taste the cinnamon but was having a hard time tasting the berries. It reminded me of an apple cider, even though there are no apples in it. But then as it cooled off, the berry flavor came through a lot more and the cinnamon flavor became a bit more muted. This is much more enjoyable cold.
I like how there are varying steep times, too. I’ll have to see how the flavor changes the second steeping of this later tonight.
Thanks, STEAp Shop for the sample! This is for the Virtual Tea Tasting 9/23/12
