Today’s iced tea of choice. I know this one got three minutes in boiling water, because I used my timer. I can safely say, this time, that this bag got the standard SBT brewing treatment — 3 minutes in boiling water, topped up to 2 litres with cold, and into the fridge overnight. I’ve almost picked this one out to brew a couple of times, but I’ve always gone for something more familiar. Today, it finally got it’s turn!
It’s wonderful, as well. The base is in hiding, because I looked after it this time, although it’s still there in the background providing a solid base. The flavouring is primarily cherryade — it even tastes slightly fizzy, somehow — with a twist of lime. It’s a really nice combination, and although I was initially uncertain about the cherry/lime combination, it actually works really well. We’re talking artificial “pop” flavours, rather than actual “fresh fruit” cherry and lime here, but it’s absolutely reminiscent of the cherryade of my childhood, and I think that’s half the point. It’s a tiny bit sweet, a tiny bit sour from the lime, and pretty candy-like. I know I’m going to enjoy sipping on this one all day, and then tomorrow too. Inspired!
