The smell of this one initially reminded me of 52teas’ Strawberry Pancake; mostly sweet strawberry flavouring coming out, with perhaps a green tea undertone.
The flavour is initially a bit tart-sweet, and the aftertaste is definitely of strawberries. Fake ones, perhaps, but I’m ok with that. The aftertaste is actually also reminiscent of the strawberry flavour from Butiki’s Strawberry Oolong, which is quite distinct from the 52teas flavour. Interesting. There’s also a light berryish flavour that I’m picking up, which fits in nicely. I’m actually rather enjoying this tea, honestly. It’s a touch too light for me, but I followed the instructions and used 1 tsp instead of the usual 1.5 that I would use, so I’ll change that next time. I am also getting some green tea flavour, both during the sip and as an aftertaste. Yum :) I don’t think I’d buy some for myself, but it was worth the taste!
Just noticed that I’m getting a bit of throat scratchiness here, not sure if it’s random and unrelated, or a flavouring thing. Not worrisome enough to make a fuss about though.
