This tea tastes as delicious as you’d hope it would, and much better than what you would actually expect.

I tend to be a bit leery with this sort of flavored tea as I find the idea is always extremely exciting, but the end result always disappointing. Not so with the Strawberry shortcake.

It’s the perfect refreshing tea for when you want the dessert but not the calories. It tastes good straight, it tastes good with a bit of golden sugar — my sweetener of choice — and milk adds an alternate, and quite nice, flavor as well.

I meant to try this iced as David’s marketed it as such when I purchased it, but before I knew it I finished all 50g as hot cups.

The black tea base is a bit disappointingly weak. It’s there, but just barely. Just enough to not mistake this as an herbal infusion.

While I definitely enjoyed this tea, I couldn’t drink this every day. This is what you drink when you want dessert, not a good strong cup of tea.

Will definitely purchase more when David’s restocks. :)

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
