Trying this cold steeped despite the hot steep horror. It’s a lot better, but I hesitate to say it’s good or enjoyable. It smells very artificial cherry and a little of that comes out in the flavor, but there is some authentic cherry taste too mixed in with over the top maraschino. It’s very tart, which I dislike. The alkaline dusty taste isn’t nearly as strong as when hot. With how tart it is I’d have to add a bunch of sugar to make this enjoyable and at that point I might as well be drinking cherry soda.
