I gotta tell you, I’m loving this stuff!
Yeah, yeah, I know that the purists are going to hate on me for it, but with this iced tea concentrate on hand, it is so easy to whip up a pitcher-full of tea at a moments notice. And given the weather we’ve been experiencing here in the Pacific Northwest lately – yesterday, it was the hottest day we’ve had all year, and today we had a hail storm! – it’s great to have something quick and easy for cool, thirst-quenching refreshment when that hot weather strikes!
This is a sweetened concentrate, and if I had any criticism of it at all, it would be that I’d rather it wasn’t pre-sweetened. I like to choose to sweeten or not sweeten my tea and not have that choice already made for me. That being said, while this is a little sweeter than I would have made for myself, I am not finding it too sweet, and the sweetener does not overpower the flavor of the green tea and pomegranate.
The pomegranate is nicely tart and I think that this helps to cut through some of the sweetener of this tea. The green tea is a delicate flavor, but, the light taste of it is quite delicious. Overall, this makes for a refreshing iced tea that isn’t too heavy. It is soothing and relaxing to sip, while at the same time, it invigorates.
This is something that I would buy for myself again. Not only is it simple and convenient, it is very tasty and something that my guests enjoy as much as I do. Third Street Chai rocks it out of the park with this tasty number!
