After smelling this, I didn’t actually want to try it. But since I had opened the package, I thought I should give it a go. I’m pleasantly surprised! Smelling it is just a whomp of chocolate flavouring, which really isn’t my favourite thing. The tea leaves in my bag are all stuck to the strawberry pieces, so I’m guessing the strawberries weren’t as dry as they might have been before they were incorporated into the tea.

Again, it’s a light black tea background with a lot of other flavour. The chocolate tastes like chocolate coating, and the berry flavour comes out when steeped. I think I’d like this better if there was more strawberry and less chocolate. I’m kinda sad that I ended up with a 2oz bag of this one, but I’ll give some to a friend and pack up some samples to bring to the swap that’s happening next weekend.

tl;dr: It’s a good tea, but the chocolate flavour isn’t my favourite. More strawberry! Less chocolate!

(I’ve mostly stopped reviewing teas here, and also mostly stopped drinking tea. :( )

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
