Steep Information:
Amount: 4 tsp
Water: 750ml filtered water, 185°F
Tool: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker BTM800XL
Steep Time: 3 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: just like a freshly made strawberry shortcake
Steeped Tea Smell: sweet, strawberry
Flavor: I would have believed it a black tea with hints of strawberry
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: strawberry
Liquor: translucent orange brown

The smell was divine, the tea was surprisingly full for a white tea. This was a swap from LENA who had the teas each labeled and i adorable tiny Tupperware, she included amazing notes for each tea!

I failed to read the Steepster notes first and am surprised everyone else tasted cake and not berry.

If it tasted as amazing as it smelled I’d get it again, but alas the taste is pretty standard.

This is one that I wish I had ordered when I placed the order with NecessiTeas some months ago. sigh

What did you end up with instead? my favorite from her is still root beer

LiberTEAS

I ordered the root beer, coco la ven, bread pudding, and pineapple upside down cake. I haven’t yet tried the pineapple upside down cake… I have a lot of teas in my possession that I haven’t tried yet. LOL

AmazonV

yea i know that feeling, 3 large boxes full of stuff i haven’t touched yet! (as in, repacked 3 large shipping boxes full of nothing but tea for fear of drowning in tea shipments)

LiberTEAS

Sounds like me. I have repurposed some of my big tins (2 pound size) of which I have MANY – I used these to store the teas that I sold… and as I empty them (as the teas sell out) I have been using them to stash away the teas that I have. I have about a dozen of them now filled with varied sizes of packages of teas – many of them are teas I haven’t yet tried. I AM drowning in tea. LOL (but what a way to go, eh?)

AmazonV

the most delicious way :)

LENA

The smell held so much potential. But I agree with you 100%

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
