drank Strawberry Ginger by DAVIDsTEA
19 tasting notes

I thought I would like this one. I love adding ginger to my strawberry rhubarb pies, and I thought, “Sounds yummy…”

It’s not. I couldn’t put my finger on what it was that was so off about the smell and the taste until another taster brought it to light. This tea really does taste like dirty strawberries—field strawberries. Though, to me, it tastes like the entire dirty plant, twigs, leaves, and the sad little berries that are no longer fresh.

The flavour is very unnatural and artificial to me. It’s not the worst and I’ll finish off the 50g I purchased on faith alone. But I would never buy this again. It’s just not yummy.

Bio

Always been a tea drinker. My cat and I used to enjoy a nice cup of orange pekoe when I was younger. From there, earl grey became a favourite. Today, I have a caffeine intolerance and have had to ration my favourite hot beverages to mostly tisane. I still cheat from time to time and am slowly discovering some new favourites.

As a general rule, I rarely sweeten my tea. But as a die-hard determined to enjoy a cup, I may add a small splash of stevia, honey, or lemon if I think it will help to make a tea I dislike tolerable.

Other than my interest in tea, my hobbies and interests change with the seasons. I’m always a sucker for electronics, but the domestic inside likes to take on the challenges of crafting. There are plenty of useful items around the home that I am proud to say I made (along with several unfished products stashed away in the corners).
