drank Strawberry Green Tea by Kusmi Tea
473 tasting notes

I ran into the Kusmi New York store the other day maybe ten minutes before they closed. I was desperately trying to smell everything and decide if it was a must buy while the sales girl tried to hide her itching to go home. I picked up this tea and one other, but I was surprised that I wasn’t taken by more teas.

I’m having this one without sweetener and it has a bitter edge to it, a tang that gets the sides of my tongue and mingles with the green taste of the tea. There is also a very distinct strawberry scent that carries over into the taste. I may have over leafed this (a recent trend for me) and will have to adjust things in the future to find the perfect cup.

Dustin, if you get there earlier next time, ask them to brew some of the tea you’re interested in; when I was there last, they offered this service — very small cups — for up to two teas!

Dustin

Cool, thanks! I do wish I had been able to get there earlier. Maybe on my next trip out here.

I wish there was a Kusmi store in SF too! I spend a total of a few months out of the year there, so there are way more chances to visit tea shops in the bay.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
