hmmmm…so far, not overly impressed with this tea. I’m wondering if i brewed it a little funny or it just really needs sugar to reach it’s happy spot.

I for sure get a chocolatey, cake kind of taste from this, but there isn’t a lot of strawberry in this one. I’m wondering if this needs sugar to bring that out. Or maybe i have a strawberry tea i can blend this with to get more strawberry + cake. I have enough to give it another whirl (more than 1 if i don’t brew it in my giant mugs lol), so the rating might be modified once i get a chance to play a little more.

I got this awhile ago, and I have only tried it a couple of times and I too have not been overly impressed so far.
I personally do not get a very cupcake or strawberry flavor from the tea.

Yeah. I just brewed up some upside down cake thing from Della terra and it smells like this tea should taste. Heh

Hesper June

Ha! I hate that when that happens.
The Cupcake tea does not taste terrible, it just does not taste like its name suggests;)

I really enjoyed it! Perhaps it wasn’t super strawberry-y, but there was creaminess and fruitiness and therefore I quite liked it. I’ll have to try it again.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
