drank Strawberry Slender by Teavana
767 tasting notes

Okay I am slightly bumping this up – I tasted the strawberry more this time and, since I drank it unsweetened, got the sweetness from that rather than the sugar. The strawberry taste was quite pleasant, and not as artificial tasting as it smelled. However, I may have oversteeped, for my own tastebuds. Immediately following that sweetness was a bitterness that, while tolerable, I would rather avoid. I will try a minute or so less on the steeping for next time and report back to compare.

*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
