I love fall and winter for one thing. Hot tea. sure, you can have hot tea any time of year, but it tastes best when it’s cold outside. And iced tea is great, but it’s not comforting. Today is chilly and windy and I’m drinking hot tea by the potful! I am so comforted right now.

This tea is fabulous. The strawberry flavor is so fresh and juicy. The flavor is like strawberry candy more than real berry, but the clean fresh flavor of the green tea makes the strawberry taste more real and not cloying. Yummy! I love this! Of course, I also love strawberry flavored candies. I love strawberry in all it’s incarnations, actually.

There’s a slight astringency at the end of the sip, but it barely diminishes the tastiness.

I bet this would be really good mixed with some lemongrass. I have to buy some of this!

THanks DaisyChubb!

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
