Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and I was happy to see large pieces of dried strawberries in this dry mix. However, I didn’t care much for the smell of this tea initially. It smells like overly-ripe, on the brink of going bad strawberries. My first hot cup also tasted faintly of this too-ripe flavor. It’s slowly growing on me with my subsequent cups. I’ll enjoy finishing off my little sample, but I don’t think this is one I’ll be putting on my shopping list any time soon.
