What a difference steeping method can make with a tea! I brewed this hot the day I got it and found it was too strong and almost sour, and not in a good way. Not one to give up until I have explored all my options, I tossed a scoop in the fridge yesterday to cold steep. Granted, I may have underleafed just a tiny bit, but, still, this is so much better! The guava really pops, but not in a harsh way. I get a mildly fruity, refreshing iced tea that is far sweeter and pleasant than the tea brewed hot. I am far, far more impressed. This is a tea I could grow to love this summer!
