I made this sort of like a soda. I steeped a tablespoon of tea in what I guess was 6 oz of water (of course, I came up with this idea after putting my measuring cup in the dishwasher and turning it on), steeped it for 4 1/2 minutes, then poured it over ice. Added agave and seltzer water, and it’s pretty spot on for a root beer float, minus the texture of having ice cream melted in it.
The vanilla and white chocolate definitely give it that float taste, but it’s not super creamy. I guess if you really were looking for that, you could add a little ice cream. I like it the way it is though.
It could use a bit more spices to me for a root beer, because to me the only flat taste to it is that it’s just cinnamon and then some vague flavors that might be root beer. The only root beer I will drink is made by Abita. If you haven’t tried it, you MUST. It’s just so sugary I try not to drink it but hey, at least it’s made of natural sugar that isn’t from corn so that’s a plus.
It’s pretty good, but honestly I’d rather just drink that one. I’ll definitely finish this bag though. If there was less cinnamon and more of the other spices and herbs that go into root beer, it’d be soooo much better.
