We now have that summer time weather in the Midwest and right now it is time to break out all of those teas I’ve been storing away to make cold brew tea. Today, I could think of no better way to end my work week than to enjoy huge mason jar glasses full of The Goat Tea cold brew styled.
Today’s tea of choice came down to literally one word in the ingredient list- rhubarb. I had never had rhubarb until a few weeks ago and I may be slightly obsessed. I have made several rhubarb crisps and bread puddings since. When I saw rhubarb was part of the Close Encounters of the Tea Kind tea blend, I knew that this was the tea for me today.
Today I went a different way with my cold brew today. I filled a mason jar with ice, a few scoops of loose leaf, and then filled with water. I broke out my bombilla filter straw and happily waited a bit until I could see the water was starting to turn a fun purple color. Took my first sip and seriously was this ever a tasty simple no fuss way to brew up some tea!
Pops of brilliant tart, marvelous berry, and sweet citrus notes fill each and every sip. You can tell there is hibiscus in this blend but the hibiscus mingles so well with the berry and citrus inclusions-not to mention the light notes of the honey added. This tea is literally this amazing burst of flavor each and every time you take a sip. I really don’t pick up the green tea or the black tea in the tea I’m currently drinking but I also didn’t leave the tea to really steep and develop how it properly should.
Regardless, I’m insanely in love with the results of this tea and this will be a tea that I’ll be ordering more of in the future. You can’t go wrong with having this delight in your tea stash for some amazing cold brew with the warmer months ahead. This tea was literally made for summer months with the bright flavors. Maybe one day I’ll try the tea hot, but for now. . .excuse me while I add more water to my glass to enjoy more tea!
