So, this tea has just been sitting in my cupboard for awhile. I have established that it is not good hot, but I began to wonder if it would be good iced. Then I remembered that I have tried it iced but I had brewed it hot then let it cool which resulted in a nasty tea. So I decided to cold brew it in an attempt to make it drinkable and not so bitter. The experiment was a success! Cold brewing it allowed the blackberry to come through much more with the sage just lingering sweetly in the aftertaste. I don’t drink a lot of iced tea if I have the choice between hot and iced. But this one is definitely good iced. Not great, but much improved over previous fataliTEAs of this. My rating is being raised, but I can only give this tea a mid-range score because it is so horrible hot. This tea is a one-trick pony.
