Thank you ToiToi, for this neat tea bag! Impressively vibrant strawberry start but a muddled astringent finish. Almost like a less exciting Marco Polo; it’s the red fruit notes and the strength of the black. The smell reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake toys I got to play with as a kid. Strawberry is hard to pull off with tea but this succeeds moderately. I think Ceylon is a great choice for a base and potentially gives it some pointy fruitiness.

Edit- I forgot about my cup an hour ago and this is very good cold! It’s like the strawberry kiwi juice I was living off of at the end of last semester. The aftertaste is realistic citric strawberries! If it was summer and I had more than this tea bag it would be one of my picks for an easy and quick iced tea.

Mmmm! I love strawberry in tea in almost any configuration. Not sure I’ve seen Dilmah stuff locally—will have to watch more closely.

If you get the chance I would give this a try. I found it quite drinkable and I’m skeptical of tea bags and don’t like strawberry things whatsoever!

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
