I don’t know about this one. I felt it was pretty loud for a white tea. The dry leaf smelled amazing and after steep it was about the same. There is definitely no lack of flavor but I just didn’t think it really tasted like strawberry shortcake. All and all I didn’t feel the flavors were well balanced, the vanilla stuck out the most and lingers long after the sip but even though the strawberry was visibly there it didn’t taste like it. I am however happy I had the chance to try it.

After this cooled off I got a bit more of a tart strawberry sweet flavor. The flavors also tied in with each other a bit better. Bumped up a few points.

Sounds good to me; I generally think white teas are way too quiet :)

I agree but I kinda felt like this was loud in a sort of yelling profanities at you for no reason kinda way. Just didn’t make sense. Nevertheless, it isn’t terrible.

As per AmazonV’s suggestion I made this iced with a splash of milk and it was greatly improved. The root beer flavor wasn’t as overwhelming. I would much rather drink it like this than hot. Thanks again. Bumped it up a few points.

Lovely, well balanced, smooth. I can’t wait to try adding this to other teas and see what I come up with.

Definitely suggest matcha.

Made this as a latte today and it was just amazing. I used mostly milk and added a little half and half for a creamy touch. Then I topped it off with whipped cream. I bit decadent but I am worth it. :-)

Heck yeah you are! Did you buy this while the code was active? Still waiting for mine- I ordered a pound for myself and 4oz for my neighbor- husband of the lady that introduced me to it. (She has an ucler so she can’t have it for at least 6 months)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

No I bought it about 2 weeks ago. Wow, I don’t think could wait 6 months but that was super nice of you to pick some up.

Cofftea

Well she has to wait.

I know, it just stinks that’s all.

Wow, so this really tastes like a root beer float. The only problem is that it tastes like a root beer float but it is warm. I am having a hard time with this one because it is so dead on but it isn’t a real root beer float.

Not bad, slightly sweet mostly tart. Still refreshing, I would enjoy this on a hot summer day over ice. Guess I will be waiting a while for that. :-)

I have bumped this up a few points because after proper measuring and water temp I was able to get a stronger coconut flavor. It was also sweetner which was a wonderful surprise. Not sure if I got a toasted feel but nevertheless a solid cuppa.
