drank Chill Out by The Tea Spot
1120 tasting notes

I’ve been enjoying cold brewing recently and anything that’s designed to make a more efficient cold brewing experience appeals to me, so I picked this up along with a Steep & Go. They recommend a10-15 minute steeping time at minimum, with 6 hours being the maximum; I ended up drinking this after about an hour.

This herbal blend definitely succeeds in providing ample flavor through cold brewing. The Tea Spot seems to be marketing in part to people who are looking to tea as an easy and potentially healthy water inhancer, and this is definitely a winner in that category. If you’re willing to wait, you get a way more flavorful result than any of those iced tea powder packets and flavor drops, plus it has a natural sweetness instead of using sweeteners.

Flavor-wise, I would call this an even split between the hibiscus and the licorice, with no peppermint at all. The hibiscus provides the sweetness and is also quite tart, while the licorice provides a bitter edge. I tend to dislike licorice, so I’m glad I only picked up a single packet of this to try, but for what it’s worth this is probably the best licorice tea I’ve ever had. I think it’s a good one, just not the best choice for me.

By the way, the Steep & Go itself is awesome.
