I really got this tea to make iced, but up until today I’d only had it hot and it was so-so. The flavor is a bit weak so you need more leaf than usual, so I was definitely waiting for an opportunity to cold brew it. Of course I’ve been making Bangkok for the past week but it was time for a change!
This is definitely better cold, sweeter and creamier. It’s not so much a rhubarb tea as it is a strawberry rhubarb tea, which is not bad at all in my book. There are tons of strawberry chunks in the blend, so cold brewed this is a lovely shade of pink! Weirdly enough it’s not pink at all hot, but it’s very pretty iced. It’s also a lot more fruit than green, so much that it’s practically a tisane. I can see why this has mediocre ratings hot, but I’m really enjoying it this way and if I run through the bag this summer I’ll probably repurchase it.
