This is another tea from the tea box!To be honest, I was expecting this tea to be a mess because 1) I decided to cold brew it even though it’s supposed to be brewed hot and then iced, and 2) I forgot about it and left it in the fridge for almost fourteen hours. Yeah, I thought it was going to be bitter from start to finish. Much to my surprise it’s a very nice cup!
The liquid is a very pale yellow, and there’s not much in the way of smell. A slight hint of something herbal, but that’s about it. The taste is unique. It comes in waves. First, it’s the peony, then a mix of lemon and ginger, and finally the rosemary. The rosemary lingers on the tongue, so the next sip is a peony/rosemary flavor which is actually really nice. I can’t say that all of the flavors meld together, but it’s still an enjoyable tea.
I doubt that I would ever order this one, but it was definitely a fun tea to try. It’s also made me curious about white iced teas. I’d love to try more of those!
