This tea smells strongly like strawberry but the strawberry taste is not overwhelming. This tea starts with a sweet berry flavor and ends with a slightly tart flavor. I might call it tangy. My first reaction to the “parfait” side of this tea is that yes, I taste a vague hint of something milky (this tea contains yogurt pieces) but this part of the flavor is not overly strong. I discovered later that this flavor sinks to the bottom so the farther I got into my tea the stronger this aspect of the taste was for me. I have tried this tea both hot and cold. I would not say that one is better than the other. I like this tea and will enjoy the amount I have purchased but I am not ready to race to the store to get more. Update: I’m almost out of this and despite my original notation of not being ready to race to get more, I believe I may be ready soon. LOL. Apparently this one has grown on me. Update 2: Yeah, I ordered more. This has become a staple for me. Increasing my rating accordingly.
