So this one came way of MissB about half a year ago in the 12 Days of Christmas exchange. At the time I held off on making it because I was intimidated by the quantity you have to make at one time for a bag of this. But yesterday I just sorta went “nope, fuck it” and set one of the bags up to cold brew overnight.

What a mistake that was.

After an eleven hour steep this was the same intense dark brown colour as Rootbeer or Coke, but without the fun bubbles and carbonation. I feel like it was at that point I knew I had made a terrible mistake. I really did make an effort to drink and like this one, but honestly all I got from it was the taste of really, really burnt toast. Like, black charcoal toast.

By some miracle I convinced Bobbi to try some at work and she made the biggest face I’ve ever seen her make in regard to any tea I’ve had her try. She was maybe a little nicer about describing it though; she called it “burnt coffee”. Either way, we agree it tastes very burnt.

I have one more pouch of this left – I will probably cold brew it just to get rid of it (I debated passing it on to VariaTEA but I really feel like she would not enjoy it) but with a significantly shorter brew time.
