I’m almost done with my 1oz pouch of this, and I must say it is such a burst of delicious fresh strawberries and rhubarb, I’m so happy Sil won the contest with it!

It was my tea of the afternoon…one thing I really like is the tartness of it without being one of those hibiscus overdose!

The base being Khongea Golden Tippy Assam, it doesn’t get completely erased by the other flavours, you still know you’re having a cup of good quality black tea.

The smell is as wonderful as the taste is, which is pretty rare in terms of flavoured teas. It goes on the shopping list, cause I will reorder, that’s for sure!

cryptickoi

you really do love rhubarb :)

TheTeaFairy

Yeah, lol, what’s up with that today???

keychange

I’m reordering this one also!

TheTeaFairy

Keychange, do you like the smell as much as I do?

keychange

I do. I could get lost in it. It’s also somehow reminiscent of childhood, although I don’t know if that’s due to any particular association or if it’s just that strawberry freshness will always be inextricably linked to unblemished innocence haha

TheTeaFairy

It is for me also, i think it reminds me of those barley sugar lollies:

Profile

Bio

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect!

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others…

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

Books! I love French and classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)
