Bye-bye, Paradise Found. I can’t say I’ll miss you.
I tried this hot. No dice. I brewed it hot, and poured it over ice. Still too sour. Finally, I’m cold-brewing the last of the tea. I used a bit less than I usually would (probably 3-4tsp for 24ish oz), and then steeped for somewhere around 8 hours.
It’s drinkable, actually. It’s sweeter and the hibiscus isn’t as overpowering. It still is overpowering, but it’s not as bad. What I really want to do is add either a touch of agave or simple syrup, but I don’t have agave and I didn’t feel like making any simple syrup, so I just had it straight.
Not one I’d order again, but should it ever cross my path, I’m glad I figured out how to enjoy it.
