I brewed it as directed sans additives and was a little disapointed in the sense of “what is everyone raving about, I just don’t get it”. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good light flavored strawberry and cream black tea where I can actually taste the black tea flavor too.

Then I read other tasting notes about adding cream and sugar and how much of a difference that made. So I decided to do so.

Zomg! This tea is so amazingly dessert-ish with cream and sugar. It makes me so happy inside. I wish I could eat it with strawberries and cream and enjoy the two together. The strawberry flavor in this is so awesome, I really enjoy the way this tea is flavored.

Thanks to Ricky and Soccermom for both sending me samples of this. I will covet them until payday when I can pick up my own tin!!!!

I don’t get it either! I just thought it was my not caring for blacks, flavored or otherwise.

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
