Almost all of my Black Friday orders have arrived, so I dumped all the teas in a bag and will be randomly picking one each day to try! I was excited that I have new teas to try when I woke up this morning and discovered that it is raining yet again. I managed to stay in the house all day yesterday to escape the yucky weather, but it’s inevitable that I have to run errands today. I really should be studying for my final that is tomorrow morning, but I am so easily distracted by all sorts of holiday-ish stuff and being curled up reading on my couch with my new perfect tea mug from Davids Tea!

This tea smells wonderfully of very sweet and tangy strawberry with a hint of rich chocolate. I was surprised when I took the first sip to find that there’s almost no chocolate flavor at all! The strawberry flavor is perfect – very juicy and not artificial, but the chocolatiness is completely missing. After I added milk and sugar, I could taste a tiny bit of what may or may not be chocolate in the aftertaste, but not enough to warrant putting chocolate in the name of this tea. It’s still a good tea, but I’m renaming it ‘Juicy Strawberry Tea’ in my head. :)

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with pieces of dried strawberries, pieces of green leaves, and small chocolate chips.
-Dry leaves smell of sweet and fruity strawberry with a hint of rich chocolate. Tea liquor aroma is of tart strawberry.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium orange color.
-Fresh strawberry flavor and finish. Light berry aftertaste with just a hint of chocolate.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. A thin cup. Juicy strawberry flavor with a very faint chocolate note.
