I love anything strawberry and this is one of the best strawberry teas I have ever tasted. The strawberry flavor is real – not that artificial candy flavor (not that there is anything wrong with that). The oolong base is bold & strong enough to hold its own with the strawberry presence. It tastes wonderful. No sweetener necessary. This reminds me of Californian summers.
EDIT: I gulped this down in a few minutes and resteeped. The tea was just as strawberry-licious and oolong-tastic as it was the first time around. Thanks for the sample, Butiki. You’ve got a customer! :)

I can’t wait to try this one, still waiting for my samples. Just got back from my trip to Arizona and have been re-united with my Zojirushi so I would just love to break it in again with one of these Butiki Teas.

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.
