This is a good tea…is it as great as I wish it was? Not quite. I think my expectations were simply too high. Had I never tried Strawberry pie honeybush I might love it. Don’t get me wrong, I do like it, but its just not love. I’ve tried brewing it a few different ways now, just under boiling, at boiling, for 4 minutes, then for 3 minutes. But it still keeps coming out just short of wondrous. It’s a little too astringent for my taste, and it is overshadowing the strawberries and cream. I am sorry Strawberry Z, I guess it just was not meant to be. We can still be friends. ;)

Oooh…this makes me want the Strawberry Pie honeybush even more! Also, I had to steep the Zabaglione around 2-2:30 for it to lower the astringency. It still got a ton of strawberry ripeness to it at that time.
