I bought this tea because I needed to love a flavored white tea, and this was the rave suggestion from the friendly staffer. Not to mention it smelled devine.
I made it following the DT directions, and the result can be described as such:
Take strawberries and 1 dirty gym sock and allow to sit in water overnight. It should pretty much equate to my first experience with Organic Strawberry White.
What a (disgusting) disappointment! But I have a new hope. Now that I see everyone saying that it should only be steeped 30 seconds, there is a chance that this tea can redeem itself in my eyes. I’ll try to pluck up my courage this week, and will let you guys know about it when I do.
The moment of truth!
I am now trying this previously detested tea with a steep time of only 30 seconds, annnnndddd….
It’s much better. Unfortunately, this tea is still not wowing me, but I think I may quite simply not like strawberries in tea.
It is no longer drab and disgusting. Instead, it is rather light and floral, with a strong strawberry flavour, especially in the aftertaste.
This won’t be a tea I’ll restock once I’m done, but now I’ll be able to finish off what I had bought!
