Cold Brew!

I ordered the three new T2 Cold Brews for myself at the same time as I ordered my advent because, despite seeming like pretty safe/commercial profiles, when I looked at the ingredients lists for the three flavours they all had some pretty interesting ingredients in the mix…

I think this is my second favourite of the three – it’s a zesty lemon flavour that tastes like a combination of lemon oil with a smidge of that pithy rind quality along with lemongrass, but with a cooling sweet mint undertone and just a bit of a herbaceous sage twist as well. I actually got the feeling like the flavour profile would probably be better hot, but that does contradict the idea of cold brew formulated teas a bit…

(I may still try it, though.)

One thing is because of the very short recommended steep time along with the fact these are preportioned sachets for cold brewing… the taste is pretty light. Honestly, in the case of this blend not as light as I’d expected it to be – but there’s an element where it’s a bit more like having a flavoured or infused water versus a proper “tea” and that’s even taking into account these are all tisanes.

It’s very clear that they’re getting away, so to speak, with short steep time (like, less than 10 minutes) because the percentage of flavouring in the blend is so incredibly high. It’s less that the ingredients are truly steeping and more than the compressed flavouring granules are just dissolving.

I’m not really anti flavouring in any way and it doesn’t bug me that this is mostly flavouring, but I’ve never really understood why so many companies seem focused on having QUICK cold brews when, at least in my experience, one of the best qualities of a cold brew is being able to “set it and forget it” and just let the tea go at its own extended pace while you do other things and come back to it hours later…
