Thanks to another wonderful gift I received, I am well stocked with tea for quite a while! I don’t know if that will prevent me from purchasing more flavors, but we shall see! Anyhow, I have to admit that I was not completely sure about this flavor when I saw it, but it smelled wonderful. There were a lot of tart notes with strawberry. As I’m drinking it now, I have to say I am bowled over by how good it is! I tried it without sweetener or cream at first and it was tart and refreshing. I’m pretty sure this one would good iced! Since I made it hot, I decided to add sweetener and a touch of cream. I love it even more now! It has the tartness of rhubarb and sweetness of strawberry. I don’t taste any apple notes, which is fine with me. The tartness with the added cream and sweetener reminds me of strawberry cheesecake! I will try re-steeping once this cup is finished. This one will be part of my permanent collection!

Hello there! I’m Allie and I am no longer a Psychology undergraduate student! At this stage, I am trying to find a job and prep for the ever so fun process of applying to graduate programs. Wish me luck!

When I originally joined Steepster, I was trying to kick my coffee habit. This brought me into a love of tea. Even though I now drink both in moderation, I seem to go through coffee and tea phases. While I love coffee, tea is almost more fun. There are so many different kinds and blends to choose from! I tend to gravitate toward sweet and dessert-type teas, due to eliminating all sugar and grain from my diet nearly four years ago. I enjoy all types of tea though! The only types that tend to be hit or miss are green and pu-erh blends thus far. Otherwise I am still open to trying nearly anything!
