Happy Easter to me! Got a takeya iced tea pitcher and the iced tea party pack from Teaopia. This was my first attempt at making iced tea, and it was definitely a success! I cold brewed for 12 hours, about 6 teaspoons worth for the pitcher (probably could have used more tea, it is a little on the weak side). This tea is delicious iced (mind you, I have also never had it warm, but with a name like Iced Princess, there seemed to be only one proper way to do it right?). I don’t really taste the black or green teas, but rather the fruitiness of the apples, papaya and hibiscus. It is both sweet and a little tart (the hibiscus no doubt) and overall very pleasing and refreshing. If you don’t like hibiscus, you probably won’t like this tea. Also, if you don’t like the flavours to overwhelm the base of the tea, you won’t like this tea.
I’m thinking this begins a long summer of iced tea experimentation!
