I hope this tea bears better than my first cup of Darjeeling did this morning. The sun is shining and the snow is melting, it’s beautiful outside with the crisp coldness still in the air. With spring on it’s way I chose this strawberry tea to have while relaxing this lunch time.

Colour: Looks like a reddish brown colour and resembles dark coloured honey.
Smell: Sweetly strawberry.

Taste: The strawberry is lovely, fresh and sweet but the ceylon grounds the flavour down making it very easy to drink. Not too sweet but just right, I should next time perhaps steep for a little longer. It was hard to estimate though as there were no instructions other than for ice tea. Even though this cup is subtle in flavour it’s still very pleasant and enjoyable. Great for people who dislike tea that is too sweet or even perhaps too fruity.

Come spring I will try this cold tea recipe and will post the tasting for that, I do think it will taste blissful.

Hey Ch3rry, have you ever tried Dilmah’s regular Ceylon bagged tea?? I was wondering if it was a good Ceylon as I have been considering purchasing some.

KittyLovesTea

Hello Scott, unfortunately I have not yet had the pleasure of trying the original Dilmah Ceylon tea. A friend sent me the strawberry flavour (as above) and a peach flavour. I would say that if you can find it at a decent price then it’s worth a try because if it’s anything like this strawberry ceylon then it’s average at best (in my opinion).

ScottTeaMan

Would you say $21.92, or 13.91 pounds is reasonable?

ScottTeaMan

…….for 300 teabags?

ScottTeaMan

If you were drinking a quality black tea in England, what are some of your favorites??

KittyLovesTea

I would say that price was good for 300 teabags. That makes each teabag around 7 cents each. You could always flavour them yourself if you are not such a fan of the original flavour by adding some dried fruit :)

If I wanted a black tea I would get a cup of either Connoseiur Tea by Ringtons which is a fairly large chain here that deliver to the front door (for disabled and elderly mostly who cannot go out to get tea or coffee) but it’s strong and not bitter which is what I like in a black tea. Or I would go for some Twinings Earl Grey tea because I love the bergamot sweetness. I do try and vary it though but I end up buying a lot of Twinings when it comes to black tea (Every day, Earl Grey, Morning, Afternoon) because compared to our native tea’s (PG tips, Yorkshire tea etc) Twinings are fresher in taste.

ScottTeaMan

Fresher…….really? I’ve heard alot of people rave about Yorkshire tea, and even PG Tips. I did try PG Tips once, and thought it was flat, even stale maybe. I ordered it from an online store that specialized in and sold British teas. Who knows how long it sat around waiting for an American to drink it?

KittyLovesTea

Well PG Tips have released a range called ‘The Fresh One’ along with ‘The Strong One’ and ‘The Delicate One’ that I have not yet got around to trying but if a tea has to advertise that they are getting fresher it makes me wonder what the hell it was before. And I found PG Tips to taste flat and stale too (even a little dusty and unclean) so I’m happy that I am not the only one :) Yorkshire Tea has been doing commercials on UK TV of a tea van travelling through America and giving ‘Good old British tea’ to those living abroad. While not being as horrible as PG Tips they are still quite flat and have no unique or special taste to them. (In my opinion of course).

ScottTeaMan

Correct me if I’m wrong, but Ahmad’s is an English brand, right? I think I ordered some of their Assam that was pretty good.

ScottTeaMan

Also wanted to try Taylors of Harrogate Tearoom Blend for years…….have you?

KittyLovesTea

Yes they are an English tea company and while I have some of their black tea (English tea no .1, Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Darjeeling and many more flavoured black tea’s) I have yet to try them. I got a box of twelve different flavours from Ahmad Tea for my birthday last week and I must admit I have been tempted to try them out. Perhaps in this next week I shall give them a go.

ScottTeaMan

Sounds good Happy Birthday! :D

KittyLovesTea

Thank you, also thank you for the wonderful conversation. It has been nice talking about tea :D

ScottTeaMan

Care care…….I’ll pop in later.

Thank you ToiToi, for this neat tea bag! Impressively vibrant strawberry start but a muddled astringent finish. Almost like a less exciting Marco Polo; it’s the red fruit notes and the strength of the black. The smell reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake toys I got to play with as a kid. Strawberry is hard to pull off with tea but this succeeds moderately. I think Ceylon is a great choice for a base and potentially gives it some pointy fruitiness.

Edit- I forgot about my cup an hour ago and this is very good cold! It’s like the strawberry kiwi juice I was living off of at the end of last semester. The aftertaste is realistic citric strawberries! If it was summer and I had more than this tea bag it would be one of my picks for an easy and quick iced tea.

Mmmm! I love strawberry in tea in almost any configuration. Not sure I’ve seen Dilmah stuff locally—will have to watch more closely.

CrowKettle

If you get the chance I would give this a try. I found it quite drinkable and I’m skeptical of tea bags and don’t like strawberry things whatsoever!

Seeing the other reviews, I think I was probably very lucky with brewing process or there was some magic in my water´s reaction to it. This is a bag very kindly sent as a surprise in a swap with Toitoi and it is (I think) the nicest bagged black tea with strawberry I ever had (must try ahmad´s though). It tastes very strongly and somewhat accurately of strawberries (or at least of strawberry flavoured stuff), the tea underneath is not particularly distinguished nor strong (at my brewing details) but wow, the strawberry really is nice. I like it very much and it is a bagged tea I would buy if I ever see it for sale, it´s a convenient portable cheering little tea.

This smells like fresh strawberries! taste more Ceylon than strawberry, but like Ceylon so guess that’s not a bad thing! The taste is pleasant but not overwhelmingly amazing. I’m going to try it iced later and see what happens!
