Overnight last night, I cold-brewed a quart of this to enjoy throughout the day today and it has been wonderful. This tea is one that definitely tastes best iced. I shared some with our houseguest (she’s my youngest daughter’s best friend and has been staying with us for a few months because her family moved away due to job demands and she didn’t want to move in the middle of the school year since it was her last year, so we offered to let her stay with us until the end of the school year) – anyway – I shared some with her as both a hot beverage (a couple of weeks ago) and now as a cold-brewed iced tea and she came in and declared her love of it. She drank it as a hot tea – and she finished the cup. She didn’t hate it but she didn’t love it either. When she loves a tea that I make for her, she comes in raving about it … which is exactly what she did for the glass of iced tea this evening.
The cherry and lime are very bright flavors of the drink but the cola is prominent – in both the aroma and the flavor. Sweet, tart & really refreshing.
