This was a gift from SoccerMom.
Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, didn't help much
Having it hot tasted like a potentially god drink, but a little off. It was floral, I don't want flowers in my limeade.
Having it hot steeped then iced in the fridge was odd, it tasted warm, the liquid was cold but it tasted warm...
