I wanted to try this, so I asked for a sample. I didn’t see the reviews beforehand, but figured I’d cold brew it only. I wanted to try it out solely for iced tea anyway. I was going with the quick iced tea room temp brewing method here since the leaves are so chopped up I figured it wouldn’t take too long. Instead, I took a 2 1/2 hour nap, so it turned out very well.
To me, it tastes like something I expect to get out of a soda machine, like in a can. The lemon is just a bit strong so it seems like that Lipton stuff. That’s not really a bad thing, because it’s not sweetened to death so it’s actually enjoyable. But I’d think if you don’t like lemon, this is not a tea for you…well, clearly.
I’m going to have to actually cold brew it overnight to see if that might help pull more of the base tea’s flavor out, if it has any more in it.
