It smells so good but it tastes so blah. You can’t deny that the dry leaf smell is most definitely chocolate covered strawberries, but that’s not the part most worth enjoying.
The strawberry just isn’t there. It tastes like cheap, watery hot chocolate. The black tea gives the chocolate this bitterness that makes me think of the hot chocolate I had at Petit Le Mans a couple years ago in an attempt to stay warm. It was not good, and its job became just keeping my hands warm.
This tea reminds me of that hot chocolate. And that was not a happy day, sitting out in the second coming of floods hoping for a 10 hour endurance race to actually happen. So I do not think I will try drinking this again.
But it does suck less with a bit of milk and sugar. I don’t like to have to add stuff to tea though, but it becomes a lot less bitter with a splash of milk.
