OK, this really does taste like melted strawberry ice cream…or what I remember of my childhood treat, considering I can’t eat ice cream anymore.

The strawberry is a terrific punch of flavor, and I enjoy the ice cream flavoring. There is a funny aftertaste, which reminds me of freezer burn – you know, that sticky stuff that forms on older-freezed goods? Apropos, but kind of icky.

The ingredients list chocolate but I don’t really taste it. Maybe that’s the after taste? IDK

I’d love to try this iced, especially with these infused ice-cubes. I did that once for Swampwater, and once for Strawberry Lemonade (Teavana) and it rocked!

Wonder how this will compare to Walter bishop

The 52 Teas blend? I’ve shied away from those blends because of the funny taste of recent blends, and the use of red rooibos (my foe). I would be curious to see what others think though!

Sil

Kittenna

No Time Like Tea Time

Sounds delicious! I wonder how bad shipping to Canada is? I really want to try this! haha

Sil

I’m not sure if they’re planning on doing it occasionally or if it’s totally off the table but Della used to have free shipping to canada at a certain threshold.

No Time Like Tea Time

Hmm, I will have to keep an eye out for that!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
