Tea #9 from Traveling Tea Box C
When I made my Georgia Tea Co. six or so months back, I avoided this one because a lot of cherry flavoring seems really medicinal (read: cherry cough drops).
When it showed up in the TTB, though I figured I’d give it a go. So I cold steeped some for about six hours.
I’m kinda glad I didn’t go too much longer. The cherry flavor isn’t medicine-like, but it’s definitely not a natural cherry, and is more like cherry lollipop cherry. It doesn’t need to be sweetened, and it’s an okay cold brew. I don’t think I’d want a pitcher of it any time soon, but 12 ounces was just fine.
I do want to note, though, that it has the same aftertaste that Teavana’s Sweet Cranberry Black has that makes me think of plastic and play-doh. So that was kind of a bummer.
