I set this to brew this afternoon, and then got distracted with something else, so I ended up brewing it an extra 4.5mins beyond the original 8mins I had on the timer. I find it more tart than sweet, but that could be because I drank a coke earlier and maybe it’s still on my palette. I was told by a Teaopia rep that one can brew the heck out of these fruit blends, but I wonder if overbrewing it makes a difference in the taste?
I’m tempted to add a tiny bit of rock sugar, but will hold off for now.
The colour is a gorgeous red colour – the colour of raspberry jello when you first mix the powder in the water. Yum yum! And it smells softly sweet. It is enjoyable, but I think it’s more enjoyable iced.
