I was very excited when I found this last night at Williams Sonoma. They had 3 different flavors, and I picked this one (mainly because I pulled out my iphone to check the ratings on Steepster).
I brewed for 4 minutes instead of my usual 5 that I do with black teas, thinking that I could always brew it for another minute if it was weak. It’s not weak. In fact, it’s much more bitter than I thought it would be. Yes, there’s the taste of strawberries, and the taste of cream, but the bitterness and astringency are what I’m really noticing. Apparently this would be better with cream and sugar…but since I’ve no cream on hand (or milk, either, for that matter), I’ll be drinking it neat. And will brew for 3 minutes next time. Going to wait to rate it.
