I made this this morning but got distracted when surprise maintenance came by! I had to hide my bird. Jeez. I had no idea they were coming. Anyway this wasn’t very good hot so it was good to let it cool off.
Again this is another one of those Teavana teas that smells amazing but just can’t translate into taste. I can’t remember now if I added sugar or not. I want to say I didn’t.
Hot, the full body in the description really showed itself. It was definitely like a heavy red wine, but it just wasn’t enjoyable. Also that might be weird for something that’s supposed to be champagne. The description talks up red wine but there’s nothing beyond a smell in here that really screams champagne. Just something about the sourness of grape and hibiscus did not match hot tea. So I let it cool off. I didn’t add ice, so I think I more or less had it at room temperature.
I have an idea though, maybe just a splash of carbonated water could make it better? I’ll have to try it fully iced that way.
