They should have just named this Rose Strawberry because visually, as well as the nose and palate are all screaming rose. In wines, legally they must list the grape varietal in a blend based on the leading percentages (I.e. if it’s 70% Cabernet and 30% merlot, they will call it a cab merlot, not the other way around). I wish this was the case with tea because I’d bet a paycheque that this tea is more rose than berry. And champagne?!? No. (Since champagne is actually a region, not a flavour). But I digress…

I’ve tried it both hot and cold, used different temperature water for the hot version, steeped for more, then for less, without a lot of variance in the end result. Tastes weak and much like rose water. Liquor has nice colour though.

This tea was a miss for me. Will not replace.

They really do need “like” buttons on here if for no other reason than to acknowledge another’s post. And smile at it, in this case.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
