drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA
79 tasting notes

The strawberries taste like strawberries!

This was the other white tea that I picked up from DT the other day (the other being Gold Rush) and I must say, I have had this tea before I purchased some so I already knew what I was getting into but I really enjoyed it so I knew it had to be added to my stash and I certainly wasn’t wrong.

Dry this is a very white tea with little pieces of freeze dried strawberries and the odd piece of hibiscus providing contrasting colors. It has a very sweet strawberry aroma to it that will make you mouth water immediately. Steeping the tea produces the same lovely strawberry aroma and will have you watching your tea timer waiting for it to hit zero.

The final brew color really depends on the amount of hibiscus and strawberry you get when you make your cup. I made one yesterday night when I got home that was quite golden due to the lack of strawberries and hibiscus but another cup today was nice and pink because I made sure to get extra pieces. This brew has stevia in it so sweetening really isn’t required but it wont hurt it if you want some, when I had it iced it would have been a little sweeter. This tea took cookie dough and slapped it into next year taking my top spot for white tea’s from DT.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
