Oh Sweet Strawberry… Once upon a time I used to work for DAVIDsTEA (It was short lived, but I still am a faithful DAVIDsTea purchaser… Retail is not for me. It quite literally is like hell on earth). As I was about to leave, I, of course, had to do a mass shopping spree. Now this was taunting me and decided since I was getting at my discount I would buy it anyway. As I was getting my manager to weigh it out, she was crinkling her nose, and looking at it in a dirty diaper-esk way. She said she hated it because it tasted like a tomato… I had to agree that a tomato tea would be completely off putting. Regardless, I bought it.

I can see how she would say tomato because it has a tangy smell, but it does taste like strawberries, but not strawberry in a sense that you would imagine when drinking strawberry juice. It taste like a natural strawberry (berry, tangy, fresh). There is a hint of grass from the white tea base, but I actually quite like it. I have only had it hot with a touch of agave (to cut a bit of the tang), I would imagine that this would make an nice iced tea as well. I’ll keep you posted when I am able to try it iced. (Im in canada and its -30 celcius, so iced is not in the near future… give it a few months, hahaha)

Growing up, I hated tea. Everything about it from the way it smelt to the way it looked absolutely repulsed me. Until one fateful day, I walked past DAVIDsTEA and accepted one of the samples they they to force down your throat. The clouds opened, and the tea angels sang a heavenly tea song. I was addicted. My tea cupboard of wonder contains 63 different teas, and its growing daily. I do not have a tea base preference because when I’m craving a cuppa, I let the cupboard beckon me, and let fate decide. My tea cupboard is nearly famous, since most people ask to marvel it. However, the rules of the cupboard are: you do not talk about the cupboard, you DO NOT talk about the tea cupboard… and its strictly look, don’t touch. My tea cupboard is organized by base, then alphabetized under each category. Some call it crazy, but I call it AMAZING (and maybe a little OCD)
