Not sure what possessed me to try a cold steep of this on a cold day, but here we are.
The dry tea in the bag smelled super strong and my nose was not pleased. It’s not one that I could just smell in the bag and enjoy the scent of. Fortunately, the smell during and after steeping was much more pleasant and doesn’t overwhelm the senses to the point of almost gagging.
As for preparation, steeped 0.75 tsp of this tea cold in my 12 oz cup in the fridge for 90 minutes and now have a tasty pinkish red drink. Very reminiscent of a raspberry freezie or snowcone while cold, though less sweet than a freezie and slighly tart—like very slightly. Plenty sweet enough to drink on its own, but leaves a lingering artificial flavour. Refreshing is a good way to describe this drink.
Also worth mentioning: I took a peek after around 1 hour of cold steeping and noticed the yogurt pieces weren’t quite dissolved, so I dipped the infuser basket a few times to break up the pieces and put it back into the fridge for the extra 30 minutes. Seems to have done the trick. Not really sure if I taste the yogurt or not though.
Cup count (12 oz) from the 27g pitcher pack: 1 (Lots more to play around with)
Would I buy this one again? Maybe, still want to try it hot too, but I do prefer this to their Just Peachy flavour I tried yesterday.
