This tea is just sitting next to me now and I attempt to work on my presentation. The scent coming from it is not very “real” smelling. I’m excited to try it, but I’m so picky about my fruit. I like fresh fruit and that’s it haha – not chocolate fruit, not fake fruit – just fresh and delicious. Hopefully it will come off more as a strawberry dessert made with real strawberries :)

The taste is an improvement from the scent, but there’s something in there that comes off as “artificial”. It’s certainly nice and creamy, especially for a green and white tea, which is quite lovely. I really wish the strawberry flavour was more true to actual strawberries.

I may put my leaves in the fridge to see how well it tastes cold brewed. Update: It’s better cooled, but I’m still not enjoying it enough to repurchase.

Thanks jessiwrites!

Haha, I am just drinking this! I was a bit disappointed in the artificial taste in this one, too. It was better cold, but still definitely nothing I’d ever order again.

I mixed it with Jasmint today, and it’s quite lovely like that.

I felt the same about this one.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
