I wasn’t quite sure how to prepare this. I used one heaping teaspoon with 8oz of boiling water and let sit for 3 mins 30 sec. At first I got a very strong black tea taste. As it cooled I got a bit of the sweet berry and creamy taste I would expect due to the name. The strawberry wasn’t as strong as I would have expected. This tea was okay for me. I will have no problems finishing the sample, but would probably not purchase again.
