When I had this the first time I brewed it hot and definitely was not impressed. This time around I decided to try something different and dumped the teabag into 1/2 a bottle of water to cold brew overnight. I think it has steeped for 12 hours now and yet it has very little flavor. It is less astringent than the hot brew but also less fruity. And has a slight vegetal quality, nothing else. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought I accidentally grabbed a plain water bottle. I guess this one just isn’t for me but thank you Arby for the share and the chance to try something new!
