I’m hesitant to write this review for a couple reasons: 1.) I only have enough to make this into iced tea one more time before I’m completely out and 2.) by the time I do have some cash to buy more, Frank could be completely out of this – then what will I do?
So be nice and don’t buy it all! Save me some, like 4 pouches to get me through this summer, um okay? :)
Forest Berry Silver Needle is awesome iced! I can’t say what it’s like hot because I already love it when it’s cold and slightly concentrated. I did add a couple more dehydrated strawberries to the mix, because I like to over-enhance things… (its the former-coffee drinker in me!)
I was a little heavy handed with the leaf and was able to get four steeps out of this, each time increasing the temperature 5 degrees and brewing a minute longer. The last two steeps I brewed with half the amount of water I used for the first two. A bit of simple syrup to make the berries shine, and I’ve got a great carafe of Frank’s Forest Berry Silver Needle iced tea waiting to be rationed enjoyed!
I’m with Azzrian – this is definitely worthy of being on the list of permanent stock! Heck, I’ll settle for just being in stock seasonally, I don’t know – say, around summer?!
