I got distracted and steeped for almost 4 minutes! Don’t do that! It makes the first note a little bitter. BUT I still get the mango and the peach from it. It’s not an overly strong flavor additive, in fact, I could go for it being a little stronger, but it’s still great because it didn’t overwhelm or greatly distract from the base at all- rather it’s like I brewed good black iced tea and then let peaches and mangos infuse in. So this steep was 4 min in 1 quart of boiling water, and added enough ice to make two quarts, no sugar. I wish I had grabbed some more last time I ordered, but it was my very first SBT so I didn’t go overboard (for once!)
Unfortunately I can’t try again because apparently my fridge only makes enough ice to be 1 quart. Cold steeping the rest!
