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!
