Well, I had a bit of a failed experiment today, but that’s okay. I cold brewed this one overnight in the fridge with about 1 tbsp of tea in my water bottle. When I got to work this morning, I realized that it was quite bitter and somehow not very bold/malty at the same time. I tried to salvage the situation by dumping it into a cup with ice and a couple pumps of Torani blackberry syrup that they have at work. It does taste a bit nicer, but still bitter and a little empty. I would probably add sugar or agave or something at this point, but I don’t have any handy. I’ll drink the rest of it since I have it, but I am probably not gonna try another cold brew with this particular tea. Moving on!
Edit: I only initially poured half my bottle into the ice & blackberry syrup. So with the other half, I poured it over ice and peach syrup. It is much better this way. I think that maybe the peach syrup just has a sweeter flavor than the blackberry, so it helps fill the emptiness that I experienced with the tea by itself and masks the bitterness. Not bad.
