Sweet anticipation

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.

So I just nabbed the spring collection and was super excited to see a black fruity tea in there.

In the bag it smells exactly like Strawberry Campino candy with a lovely accent of nut and black tea.

Once steeped it smells more like “real” strawberries less candy like.It reminds me of strawberry compote or even hot strawberry topping that my mother used to put on cakes with added dollops of whipped cream.

It is reddish and honey colored and quite opaque.

My first try is as a hot tea but I considerably cooled it down so I could see the iced tea and hot drink potential.I will be able to tell if this deserves to be iced.

First taste I was worried about it being a lot like DT’s carrot cake..and unfortunately it is quite the same except bursting with Strawberry flavor.It is a little on the bitter side even with a less generous tea spoon and steep time.I can see the potential for it iced but as with Carrot Cake I am not in love..

As I have often realized though a tea gets mostly great reviews there will always be exceptions..people just have different levels of appreciation and expectation. What floats one person’s boat may not be at all nice for someone else.I used to get worried that I was missing out but I do not like some flavors and expect different things and that’s quite okay…it means I can save money and trade for something more to my liking!
I will trade this tea to my bff lindairvine she LOVES Carrot Cake so I’m pretty sure she’ll love this as well.

I’ve had this tea in my possession for AGES, brewed it a couple times, but never got around to actually logging it here! Probably due to the pregnancy and that it just doesn’t ‘wow’ me in any way.

However, my tot was clamouring for tea and I thought this one might be one that pleases her. And I was right. I brewed it up, let her stir the leaves around in The Steeper, then waited for it to steep. Once steeped I poured 1/2 tea + 1/2 milk + pinch sweetener into her sippy cup and watched her chug it down barely pausing for breath!

Hmmmm… so while I won’t bother restocking it, Strawberry Shortcake has a fan in my daughter. And at least I’m serving her tea instead of a big ol’ plate of cake!

I think I might have a think for teas with Strawberry in them, I have Sweet Strawberry, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, Earls Garden and now Strawberry Shortcake. Worse is the dessert collection is even larger then this now!

Dry this tea has a very present strawberry smell with a slight hint of creaminess, it has an aroma very similar to candy, but I really wouldn’t recommend eating the tea leaves. Steeping the tea draws out more of that strawberry aroma into the air, certainly an aroma anyone in the room can enjoy.

The flavor really doesn’t strike me too much as strawberry shortcake, I certainly get the strawberry; however the shortcake would appear to be absent. There is a long lingering creamy aftertaste that could be compared to the taste of packaged whipped cream, not horrible but if you grew up on homemade whip cream it’s just not the same.

Certainly a good tasting tea, nice and sweet with a bunch of flavor, not exactly what I was expecting. I think my expectation of strawberry shortcake flavoring outside of the real deal is just too high.

If you love strawberry teas you should definitely check out Lupicia’s Strawberry & Vanilla, it’s so yummy!

Great to know, something else to check out in the future, as I really like both strawberry and vanilla.

I get everything from the cake to the cream, to the strawberries of course. Which is great considering some flavored tea descriptions can be a stretch sometimes.

Note to self: Must nectarify this one and add it to a real strawberry shortcake batter in the near future. Or better, in strawberry jam. Ok I’m done.

Sipdown!!

My husband says that I need to start declaring it from the rooftops every time I do a sip down! So… SIPDOWN! hahaha

I’ve been loving this one a lot lately. I didn’t enjoy it as much when I first got it, but as time went on and I started trying this one again, I’ve fallen in love it with it. I’m actually really sorry to see this one go ‘cause I’ve been enjoying it so much.

This is a really nice strawberry tea that has an almost creamy flavour to it too. I’m loving the brittle in it too. I really like it. It’s delicious!

I’m very sorry to see this one go. I’ll have to get more of it if it comes out again.

1.5 tsp for 300mL water @95C. Drunk bare.

Backlogging.

Well, unlikely many of the blends at DavidsTea, I _can_actually taste the tea in this one. The balance of strawberries and little bits of sugar is quite nice, and, thank the tea gods, there’s no freakin hibiscus in this blend. But but but — and I’m being difficult — I wish I could taste more tea than I can strawberries and sugar.

I expect this might be quite nice, if a little weak, cold-brewed for an iced tea.

I’ve had this many times but this is my first time logging this. I’ve been resteeping a cup of this all day at work and as soon as I got home I brewed up a fresh pot of it. It seems I can’t get enough of this blend!

Nice and creamy with real tasting strawberries, I’m so glad I bought a tin of this.

Boiling water, 5mins30secs. Rating: 85.

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.
