An okay tea. I think my problem is expectation. I have ideas about how a tea is going to taste before I taste it. Sometimes, I am disappointed. This dry tea smelled strongly of strawberries. Like strawberry candy. Which is awesome. THen, as soon as the hot water hit the leaves, the smelled changed to something toasty and hay-ish. What happened to the strawberry candy? The strawberry flavor is light and a bit tart. I actually think it tastes a bit funky. The flavors of the tea and the strawberry don’t mix well, but it’s still ok. I think it would be better iced. Don’t expect it to taste as juicy and fruity as it smells and you’ll be ok.

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…
