This is the first of the summer teas I’ve tried this year, and I’m pretty content with it overall. I cold brewed it in my new FORLIFE Iced Tea Jug for 4 hours. I added a touch of agave, but I don’t think it needed it as it turned out a bit too sweet for me.
I’ve never actually had strawberry shortcake, so I can’t comment on its authenticity in that department, but it does give me a sweet dessert-y vibe which is nice. I don’t get much of the nuttiness in the infusion, but that could be because I covered it up with the agave. For now I’m holding off on giving it a rating, but I’m confident I’ll pick up some more throughout the summer.
Is there anything more summery than a big bowl of strawberry shortcake? We look forward to strawberry season all year, just for that familiar dish of ripe, juicy berries, golden pastry and a cloud of whipped cream. But with this sweet, juicy blend, you can enjoy the taste of summer anytime, anywhere. It’s a dreamy mix of black tea with sweet strawberries and toasty pieces of brittle – ice it with a bit of cream for the full experience.
Ingredients: Black tea, brittle pieces, strawberry.
