DIY Advent Calendar – Day 5
Tea Lemonade and Cold Brew Sipdown (232)
I cold brewed this and then realized we have a large container of lemonade that is expiring on Wednesday so I used the rest of the sample for a tea lemonade. It’s a fruity black tea so it seemed like it would work both ways.
I started with the cold brew. It is really fruity but more tropical fruits than the generic fruit profile a lot of fruity teas have. I think the strongest fruit I am tasting is papaya, which is odd since I find that tends to disappear. Papaya and then the base tea, which isn’t the best quality and reminds me slightly of the Adagio black tea they use that I don’t really like. Thankfully its muted because of the cold brew prep method.
I think I actually like the tea lemonade less than the cold brew. The lemonade and papaya are playing off each other in a weird way. Also, the base seems to be coming through a bit more which is odd since you think the lemonade cover it.
