I have shared this with a couple people now but so far it seems I am the first to try it (or at least the first to review it). I was excited to try this because I have often seen blueberry and maple but never strawberry and maple and those are two flavors that tend to call to me when I see them in blends. Consequently, I had high hopes for this that unfortunately it just doesn’t seem to be meeting. In my first sip, I got a nice dose of strawberry but that flavor has escaped me more and more with each subsequent sip. At times it resurfaces for a moment while in other instances I get a bit of an almost medicinal berry flavor which is just not pleasant. As for maple, I am not getting any, which seems to be the case with most maple teas (aside from Steam Tea House’s Organic Maple Seduction). Ultimately, the base really overwhelms the rest of the components. Thankfully it is neither bitter nor astringent but it also is not the greatest black tea I have had either. I will be sure to play around with the parameters to see if I can coax out the strawberry/maple but for now this is just alright.
