Tea experiments: Iced Shikwasa oolong Tea
So from my last tasting, hot, this tasted like a nice floral taiwanese oolong, however no shikawasa citrus notes. Now, the only reason I know about this fruit is from the sakuraco treat subscription box from august the last two years. They had shikwasa jellies, candies and pastries with jams and i became really pulled in by that flavor. Its a lemon that also has a lime flavor. Anyways, this tea on its own dry smells like the fruit but doesn’t have any flavoring of it as far as i can tell.
Enter stage 2: buying pretty expensive imported shikawasa concentrate juice and trying to make a tea mocktail. I have little to no experience making sweet teas and mocktails and it shows unfortunately. XD I won’t rate this until I think it is better.
I think i diluted my tea with too much ice as the citrus flavor seems to have overwhelmed the tea. I didn’t put much juice or sugar/honey in, roughly a tsp each. End product kind of reminds me of a tarter lemon-lime gatorade (or at least what i remember it tasting like, its been a long while since I had one). Haha, it is certainly palatable but not what i was envisioning.
