Tea is juicy with a definite creaminess. I really like that I can taste the actual tea in this one which compliments the strawberry quite nicely. The aftertaste is very strawberry shortcake-like. I have detected some astringency on subsequent first infusions, I am going to try using less dry leaf next time (1 David’s tea scoop for ~400 ml of water).
On the second infusion the strawberry flavour is slightly muted but the creaminess is still present. The flavour of the black tea is able to come out more on this one.
Third infusion was noticeably weaker in flavour. This tea would not likely do well after the third infusion.
I was served this as the tea of the day on ice. It was very delicious- the creaminess is still there and it is quite juicy and sweet.
I cold-brewed this tea using 1 heaping David’s Tea scoop for ~400ml of water for ~10 hours. The flavour blooms into a taste which reminds me of a chocolate covered strawberry; the robust taste of the black tea balancing nicely with the strawberry flavour. A little bit of the tartness of the strawberry is present on the finish but not to the point where it is unpleasant
