I made this as a hot tea and a teapop. However, when I knocked the tea leaves out of the filter it smelled a bit like boiled meat. I have no idea why and I assume it was my mind just going nuts but that was off-putting and now I don’t know what to drink it.
Thankfully the hot cup neither smells nor tastes like boiled meat. Unfortunately, it does taste like lime fondant. Just something artificial and a touch grassy.
The teapop looked really cool when I first made it because the tea was slightly cloudy and settle to the bottom while the clear and bubbly teapop sat on top. It was layered and looked awesome.
It’s better as a teapop. I used blackberry perrier and the mix of that and the tea tastes like a blackberry lime candy. It is managing to capture a sweet cocktail flavor, though I have never tried an actual caiprinha cocktail. Nevertheless, prepped as a teapop, that fondant artificialness is gone and it’s quite refreshing.
ETA: The teapop is refreshing at first but as you keep drinking, that fondant quality creeps back in. Damn.
