Got this as a sample. The color brewed is a muddy tan-pink. From a distance the peppery scent is the strongest, on closer sniffing you can pick up the strawberry and some ginger.
On tasting, I’m not sure what to think. It’s not bad, I’m just not used to fruit or flavored teas, for the most part. The strawberry is subtle and not overwhelming. The ginger you can’t really taste, but can feel that ginger-feel in your mouth during and after a sip. The pepper aspect is the largest flavor in a sip and is surprisingly pleasant.
I was dubious going in, but it’s a return-to-it tea. I like it enough to make me reconsider the world of flavored teas and will explore this area more due to it.
The only thing that could really be improved would be to bring up the strawberry flavor a bit more.
On describing it and sipping further I think I do like it. I’ll fiddle with temps and strengths to see what they do to this tea. It’s interesting.
Edited to add:
As this cools, the strawberry comes up some.
