This tea is part of my very first order at 52 Teas. Reviews looked good, so I added it. I never ate a strawberry zabaglione so I had to google it to what it was.

Dried: SWEEET! very sweet. Strawberry. So sweet and strawberry that it was more of a fake strawberry smell, but not that “red” fake smell, more strawberry tangy crazy sweet.

Steeped: black tea, reddy amber colour. Smells creamy, berry and black tea.

Taste: Black tea (for sure!) then a hit of creamyness with strawberry sweet at the end. Fairly mild, IMO, for creamy and strawberry. Very good black tea.

This would be the 3rd 52 teas I reviewed and I’m noticing a trend in the flavours being fairly mild – the dominate taste being to enjoy the tea, with subtle hit of wild flavour at the end. If you read most of my reviews, I love DavidsTea, which I find does the reverse of wild flavour concept that peek out more or has a stronger fruit flavour than the tea. This 52 teas would be “Black tea, Strawberry Zabaglione flavour” vs it being actual drinkable Strawberry Zabaglione.

With that said, I’d check this tea out if you are a black tea lover and want a little cream/sweet/berry without adding cream. This might make a killer latte.

Me? I’ll finish this stash or potentially give away to friends. I prefer something more stronger for fruity/cream taste.

Profile

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
