drank Strawberry Lemonade by iHeartTeas
1196 tasting notes

I’m using a number randomizer to pick teas to drink out of the ones I haven’t tried yet. Of course it picked one I just got but I’m not going to argue with it, I will drink. Strawberry lemonade naturally makes sense cold, and I had just enough ice cubes to make myself a glass. I steeped 2 tsp in 4 oz of water until it was as red as a strawberry.

First impression: WAY tart. I added some agave to it, and it was still somewhat tart but bearable. Then I watered it down just a little bit more, and now it’s like drinking a juicy strawberry. I cannot believe how much it tastes like a strawberry. It has a lemon aftertaste too, staying true to its name, but I am loving the strawberry flavor.

I’m so glad that the hibiscus was brought under control for my taste buds that easily. I wish the same could be said for other teas! Not getting much rooibos flavor at all, so it seems kind of like it would take away from the flavors if it was here.

Thanks, Kittenna!

I’m so glad you enjoyed this blend. It’s funny how you needed to experiment with this tea to get it just right for you. This blend is exactly how you describe it to me as well. Being such a temperamental tea I encourage everyone to experiment with it first. Start with no additives with shorter steep time and increase as needed and add sweetner as needed as well. Just like you I’m hoping others find their happy place when making this. The best part is when you do it’s simply amazing. :) I hope you agree.

Oh yeah, I was surprised that was all it took, given the previous cup of tea! I just have a little bit but I am definitely going to order some from you soon! I have two others of yours from Kittenna to try first of course ;D
