The dry tea smells like delicious, sweet, strawberries. Somewhat artificial but more in a candy-like sense.

The brewed tea smells like sweet strawberry jam. There is almost a bit of a spice or peppery smell, like what I associate with the green strawberry leaves.

The tea tastes like creamy strawberry jam. It is sweet enough on its own without adding anything, but not too sweet. There is a creamy and thick feeling to the liquor. The creaminess is due to the vanilla but the vanilla taste is not too strong. I would say the black tea is of medium boldness. But it is smooth, it does not overshadow the strawberry but blends very well with it.

Not too flavourful immediately after brewing, but better after it starts to cool a bit.

Edit: This is super creamy strawberry after it has cooled to room temp. I think better than when it was hot. Looking forward to trying cold brewed/iced.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
