Cold-brewed this overnight. I was afraid it was wayyy too long (24 hours?) when I looked at it. It’s almost black. When I pour it into a glass, it pours dark, dark purple. It looks almost like grape juice.

It tastes surprisingly light. I definitely get the raspberry and lime. I am tasting a bit of grape, but that could be a side effect of the color. I’m not a huge fan of grape juice.

Still, good!

I ran out of my box. Summer has definitely been warm and long (we got our first 30oC+ day in November last year, and we’re set for more next week afte 34 today), so I’ve been icing tea like crazy. Didn’t end up cold brewing this one, just instant icing, and it goes such a dark red in just 5 minutes I can imagine the black colour from an overnight steep! Glad you liked it.

Another wonderful tea from TassieTeaGirl!

I love how I can taste the raspberry here first and foremost… and not the hibiscus! There’s a bit of bite from that, but it really isn’t the primary flavor. The lime is super interesting too. I’m drinking this hot, and it’s a little odd – I think it needs to be cold-brewed, so I’ve started a pitcher. But it’s a good berry blend that isn’t overwhelmed by hibiscus. What a thought!

Yes! Ice/cold brew it! So good and very refreshing. I found it was great straight, but I also enjoyed adding a little honey.

I went to Melbourne for a long weekend about 6 weeks ago, and went to the Oriental Tea House about 4 times and tried lots of their teas, both full cups and testers. This was a delicious iced tea they had for testing, so much so that I had to grab a box to bring home. The other half and I have been having this iced in the last little while quite a bit, we’ve almost gone through the whole 100g! Looks like an order might be needed…

So what does it taste like? Sweet and refreshing and very tasty. So good as an iced tea. If you order from the Oriental tea house or live in Melbourne, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

Will probably be doing a bit of backlogging on some of their other offerings today, but in general, OTH do lovely teas, so I’d recommend a look if you’re interested. The yum cha is also good!

I love this infusion as a ‘tealess tea’ alternatice. Full flavoured and a gorgeous colour!
