Decided to try to make a pitcher of this iced. My birthday packets were HUUUUUUGE, so it’s not like I don’t have the tea to burn :P
It brewed up light, really light. Worryingly light. Despite this, however, it has a surprising amount of flavor. (Yay!) The cold brewing has really smoothed it out, making it really seem like a lighter version of golden monkey. I’m kind of sad at the loss of the spicy undertone, but it still makes for a really refreshing somewhat sweet somewhat malty summer beverage. I like it!
