Strawberry and mint is a favorite summertime combo for me—the hotter it is, the more likely you are to find a jar cold-steeping in the fridge, but I don’t do it often in a mug. But as it was at least warm and sunny enough to hang sheets out on the line, I decided to give it a wintertime whirl.
This time around, it didn’t go quite as planned. Either I oversteeped (a definite possibility) or the little Advent packet didn’t quite contain the right balance of ingredients (that happens with chunkier teas when you have limited space and can’t pack it all in there), and it ended up a little on the bitter side.
Your experience may vary—this has great potential for fruit tea lovers!
