Today I decided to try this tea hot with a little sugar. It is delicious—the strawberry flavor is much stronger in the hot version than in the cold, and the apple flavor has all but vanished. Tart and satisfying, although the mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. It smells exactly like fresh picked strawberries, and the tea is a very beautiful deep pink color. It makes for a bright spot of warmth and color on such a grey and stormy day.
