I ripped open the little sample bag of this tea and was so delighted with the smell! The smell was pure, juicy strawberries! I am sipping and taste mostly cinnamon and a sweet background, but no butter or strawberries or PIE flavor. I haven’t added milk or sweetener at all. What did I do wrong? I steeped for 8-10 minutes and was so looking forward to tasting what everyone else has tasted. I haven’t lost hope with this tea yet, I’m going to try another cup to see if I get more strawberry dessert flavor.
EDIT: I have increased the rating of this tea thanks to the steeping tips from liberTEAS. I am getting much more strawberry now and still the same cinnamon finish. I don’t taste crust, sugar or butter, though. Wish I did! This tea is definitely a tasty cup, but I feel that I have to add too much leaf for one pleasing cup of tea. Still yummy, though.
