Today, I drank this blend cold. I made the blend last night: (2 teaspoons Rooibos Chai with 2 teaspoons Matevana with 1/2 teaspoon of German Rock Sugar) in my glass cylindrical tea carafe. I filled it half way with hot water, allowed it to steep for five minutes. This brew is dark, almost black right now, maybe I let it steep too long? Anyway, filled the rest with cold water and put in the fridge overnight.
This morning I poured about half of it out into my travel mug. It was still dark, but it was very good. So I kinda like this Chai cold, odd.
The flavor is complex: you have a tea flavor, but then a hint of almonds and cocoa, followed by the chai spices. The is what is most complex; it is contrasted by the temperature of the tea. This does not make the taste more intense, but it makes it a sensation, you have the blend of flavors and mouth feel combining to make a total experience.
