Cold Brew Sipdown (667)!
Thank you Starfevre for the tea! This was my last SBT from your stash sale and while I’m sure someone probably has other SBT flavors kicking around in their stash, this is very likely the last one I’ll ever experience…
I was rather unimpressed with this one, but I don’t want to be too critical because I know it’s several years old and I imagine much of the flavouring has deteriorated with time. Drank straight, this was rather bland and just had a breadyness/doughy taste, one I’d associate more with the black tea than any flavouring. I made this into a whole pitcher though, so I had some room for experimentation so I also tried cups with chocolate agave and with oat milk. Oat milk was ok; it upped the creaminess and made the tea feel like it had more body/character. Chocolate agave was the best addition though; with the doughy quality I was already getting the added flavour was basically just like a cobbled together “cookie dough” profile.
I’m curious how accurate this one would have been when it was fresh, but I’ll never know and I’m satisfied enough with my experience with it now.
