This is my first recipe and my try to make a delicious ice tea citrus!
For me this already tastes really nice and i hope you can enjoy it aswell :)
Add WS-23 or Kolada how you like it. I like it REALLY cold so just dosate as you need :)
Also its really low in flavour after mixing. After about 4-8 hours it already got a nice taste. I recommend let it steep for atleast 1 day.
People in D / A / CH most likely know and love "Der Grüne" by Pfanner, which is a Cactus-Lemon Green Ice Tea.
After around 6 Iterations, this recipe comes close to 99% of the orginal.
TFA Sweet Tea builds the tea base that is rounded up to a Green Tea base with FA Green Tea and FA Bergamot.
INW Cactus and CAP Lemon Sicily are providing the Cactus-y, Lemon-y note that is slightly sour with some help of TFA Sour.
SuperSweet and WS-23 are additives of course, but are a must for the original taste and coldness of an Ice Tea.
Steep Time: Can be SNV'd but it is recommended to let it steep for at least 3 days for the Cactus to settle. The recipe reaches its full potential after 5+ days.
I was raised in southern Louisiana, primarily by my mother. All year long, we would have a stock of approximately 1 gallon of sweet, SWEET, southern iced tea. As my brother and I got older, we became interested in learning how to make "the best tea in the world". We were shocked to find that my mother put 2 cups of sugar/gallon of boiling water.
Fast forward to being an adult, living in Northeast Ohio, I find myself craving sweet tea as soon as winter breaks and I trade in my winter coat for a light jacket. My brother, living in TX now, has adapted my mom's old recipe, cutting the sugar by 2/3. This Recipe is inspired by my brother's adaptation: Louisiana Sweet Tea
CAP Juicy Lemon/FA Lime Tahity: These two flavors, at this percentage give you a lovely lemon-citrus blend. It's a light counter-balance to the earthy depth of the teas.
CAP Super Sweet/TPA Marshmallow: The Super sweet gives you that sugary sweetness that comes with sweet tea. The TPA Marshmallow gives a little more sweetness, plus a tiny bit of vanilla/marshmallow. Honestly, at 0.25, the marshmallow can likely be dropped as it's just a mild flavor enhancer.
FA Black Tea and Green Tea. These two teas combined give you the earthiness of the black tea with the floral high notes of the green tea. I love these two flavors combined.
