Made this from my T2 Society sign-up sample to go with breakfast today. It has a very strong fresh strawberry smell, but like many flavoured teas, the actual taste doesn’t live up to it (if it had tasted as strawberry-y as it smelled, this would’ve got a 95-ish rating. It smells that good!). IT tastes really nice though. Beautiful soft sencha with strawberry notes. Even the other half liked it, and I’ve not yet given him a green tea he’s liked.

So really nice, but a stronger strawberry taste would’ve blown this into “must have this all the time” territory. Will experiment as summer comes around with adding strawberries (and champagne, thinking it would go well in a cocktail..)

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
