I didn’t think I liked fruity teas (with the exception of lemon and honey during a cold) but this tea has converted me. It smells strong, like strawberry candy. So I expected an equally artificial taste. Instead, it tastes like a fresh strawberry. This tea is divine. The black tea base isn’t anything special, in fact, it’s kind of twiggy. But I’ve been looking for a decaffeinated tea that tastes good and this is it. It tastes nice plain, but adding milk and a little bit of sugar sends it into an over the top heavenly crazy place. I’ll be going back for this one again and again. I made a huge Adagio order and this is the only tea that I keep repeating.
