I always prefer iced tea cold steeped rather than hot and chilled but I wanted to follow the directions so I tried – but they were really vague. How much boiling water am I suppose to use before I add cold water and ice to make 2 quarts? Dunno… package doesn’t tell me.
I did 3 cups boiling water for 2.5 minutes (the instructions say no longer than 3?) then topped up with cold water to make 2 quarts….
I don’t like this – the black base is bitter and intrusive on the other flavorings. There is some strawberry and there is some custardy/cream cheesey something else but I can’t get past the black base. Maybe if I had used different water ratio? After a couple of days in the fridge – the nasty black does mellow a little bit – but I thought the other flavors had faded as well.
Sorry this one isn’t for me.
