85
drank Strawberry Black Tea by Ahmad Tea
1299 tasting notes

I avoided strawberry tea for the longest time as I expected to hate it. Gmathis sent a Cheapster Steepster award winner of a strawberry tea bag my way and changed my mind. Now this one is one I had planned to buy the first time I saw it. Ahmad is my favorite company for tea bag tea as they just seem to get it right more often than not. Before I could find it Brett sent this my way. I opened the envelope and swore I had just opened a box strawberries out of the fridge. Awesome. Steeped for 4 or 5 minutes. The taste is lighter than the smell but it is pretty close to the real deal. I like that it is light enough to taste the tea. It gets bonus points for that. If you are going to drink bagged tea it might as well be a good one. I will still buy this when I see it in the store. High yum factor. 85 is pretty high for a bagged but worth it to my taste buds.

Got to add the smell while the cup is sitting reminds me of Strawberry Newtons. It’s making me hungry.

Must…search…some…out….

Did I mention the smell? :) I think it’s worth the price of admission just for that.

That sounds lovely. Gmathis, maybe Brits in Lawrence has it. They carry Ahmad.

I have got to figure out an excuse to go to Lawrence—a friend of mine has raved and raved at what a fun store it is. (Seems like she told me they had some kind of Brit block party this fall…sounded like fun.)

It’s a fun town when the weather is nice. Lots of neat shops all along one or two main drags. Parades every weekend it seems like. Plus, tea! :)
