Terrible. I ended up tossing it down the drain.
Hot, it was tolerable. Barely. But very fake tasting. Like one of those watermelon candies. Not at all like a real juicy melon. Then as it cooled, I got a serious bitter note. Kindof like when you accidentally bite into a watermelon seed.
Sugar didn’t help, and neither did a dash of milk.
What am I gonna do with the rest of this packet!?

Oh no D: And the name sounds so promising…

Yup. I was kinda sad. My high hopes are dashed!

what if you resteep with diff parameters, maybe cooler temp., diff water ratio. Also i think agave syrup would help. i maybe wrong

Indigobloom

Actually I used water that was about 96c. Perhaps if I went straight for boiling it’d help. Worth a shot.

Was this one of the Southern Boy Teas or the old iced tea series? If the latter, it is about three years old.

Indigobloom

Ahh hmm. I’d have to check. But it was whatever I ordered a few months ago.

If you ordered it a few months ago from us, it had to be the Southern Boy Teas series. Did it come in a foil pouch with a teabag inside, or was it a kraft pouch with foil lining and loose tea inside? The first would be the new SBT; the second the old iced tea series.

Indigobloom

The first one. So an SBT.

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
