I received this free in the mail. Upon looking at the description, I thought I’d be disappointed since fruit in tea are always too tart for me. I was completely wrong. I opened this up and smelled some sweet candy popcorn and warmth. For some reason I thought it would brew pink, just like the photo, but I thought to myself, “well this is a black tea based blend… how can it be?” … lo and be hold… it was a nice brown shade. Still, smells sweet and warm… vanilla and strawberry.

I tried it plain first, like I usually do, then decided to add sweetener and milk. It is just one of those cold, drab mornings. Very sweet and creamy. I love sweet. I feel like a child again :)

EDIT – I saw Auggy’s tasting note, describing it as “Strawberry Quik”… and YES that is exactly what it smells like!!

Bio

I’m a medical resident who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
