I tried this tea at 3 minute steep with boiling water and a splash of cream. It didn’t work for me. Got a dark orangish brown cuppa creamy looking tea, but the flavor just wasn’t speaking strawberries and chocolate to me. I think adagio’s ceylon base is alright, but I prefer other strawberry flavored blends to this one. Thanks Doulton for letting me sample this. I know it’s been quite some time since I reviewed a tea from the wonderful samples you sent my way. I may try this with a longer steep to see if more flavor comes out. I just get afraid of bringing out the bitter ceylon taste.
