From Tickled Tea

You know when they say something is so good you can taste it? Well with this tea, you can hear it too!

A sweet concoction to take you back to your childhood days walking the rows at the carnival, with the fun addition of candy pearls and crackling candy that snaps and pops once water is added.

It’s a carnival in a cup!

Cold Brew Sipdown (460)!

Put off trying this one for a long time because I was just a little weirded out by it. I mean, what does it mean that this has crackle candy in it? Like pop rocks? What could that possibly add to the tea apart from some fun initial sound that tea wouldn’t normally have and some extra sweetness? Well, turns out that the tea does indeed crackle when water it poured onto it – but when I cracked open my package most of the sprinkles had actually kind of melted and become this sticky fruity goo that was a bit of a mess. So I probably didn’t get an intense of a crackle as I’m imagining was intended.

As for the flavour, it was pretty sweet – kind of had a fruity cranberry/blueberry taste to it but with a consistent overtone of sweetness not unlike cotton candy/fairy floss. So, for me at least I spent the bulk of the brew thinking of the blue cotton candy you get around the summer at the fair/carnival. It was pretty delicious, actually! Very smooth and honestly I’d finished it off before I even knew it.

I think this one was limited edition, so it’s a moot point now but I’d definitely try this one again if that oppertunity arose. It was interesting, and I’d be curious to see what would happen with the crackle candy if it wasn’t melted down already/a goopy mess and if you brewed it hot rather then letting the candy dissolve over a longer period of time as a cold brew. Kind of like ‘tea science’, I guess…

I never thought to cold brew this though I have a bit left so perhaps I’ll set that up now.

The rooibos here is coming off citrusy which is weird but still nice. And there is a sweetness but more fruity than cotton candy. It isn’t a bad tea but nothing is all that great about it.
