I’ve had this hot before and despised it. It tasted like hot cough syrup. But since it’s getting warmer I’ve been playing with my flavored teas, making them iced. So, in my hopefulness to make this one drinkable, since I still have over half the tin, I cold brewed three sachets in 1 quart of water, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and lots of ice cubes. This tea is really sweet, and iced it tastes great. I’m really glad I gave this tea a try iced, it doesn’t have that cough syrup taste to it at all and now I have confidence that I will use all the sachets without feeling like I’m a sick 5 year-old!
