Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. I have tried the Strawberry White tea from SpecialTeas in the past, but that was quite a few years ago, and I don’t know how similar this will be to my memory of that one. I remember enjoying that Strawberry White quite a bit, but after reading some of the tasting notes on here… I am thinking maybe it isn’t the same tea! We shall see… we shall see.

No no no… this is NOT the same strawberry that I remember… Perhaps they changed their recipe somewhere down the line? I guess we really will never know since SpecialTeas no longer exists.

This isn’t bad exactly, that is to say, it’s not the worst stuff I’ve ever tasted. It is drinkable and I can finish the cup… but, it isn’t something I’d brew again.

And I’m kind of shocked, really. Because my memory of the strawberry white from SpecialTeas was that of a really delicious strawberry flavored white tea, and this tastes nothing like I remember. It tastes oddly floral, and normally, I’m all for floral notes, but here they taste bitter and sharp. Almost soapy. Almost.

Now that I am sipping more of it… I don’t know if I will finish the cup. I’m liking this less the more I sip on it.

I am obsessed with tea!

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
