In a few other of my tasting notes, I told a really long story about why I have a cupboard dedicated solely to apricot tea. I have been trying to get rid of some of this tea, so I decided to start cold brewing the decaf teas. That way I can drink it at any time of the day, and start sipping down some of my teas.
This one is a bit of a surprise. The smell of the dry tea bags is very soapy. I can’t quite decide why it smells soapy. I have cold brewed this a few times and it turned out ok, but nothing to write a tasting note about.
Today I cut back on how much tea I used. Im using a 64 oz pitcher, instead of using 6 tea bags, I used 3. This actually turned out really well. I didn’t even need to add any sweetener to it. There is a sweet apricot taste. It is a bit artificial though. You can still taste the black tea base.
I think I can cold brew this until the tea is gone. And then move onto the next one.
