I am unsure what to think about this one. I made it hot, but I can imagine it is much better cold brewed. It is super citrousy, tastes like juice, it is sweet on its own but also quite tart/bitter. I taste grape, apple, lemon, pineapple. It tastes like someone dumped a bunch of juices together. Its not bad, but its like drinking hot juice. It is getting better as it cools, but still overly sweet even without adding sweetener.
I cold brewed this one for about 7 hours. I could have brewed it for a bit longer but I wanted cold tea and didn’t want to wait. It is pretty good. Similar to the hot brew. I found the the opus rouge did take over the blend, even though I used 2/3 citus lavender sage and 1/3 opus rouge. There is a strong grape type taste, and then underneath that there is citrus and sage. The lavender is very light, which I don’t mind at all. It is very juice-like and refreshing.
