Strong strawberry flavor, even on this old sample teabag! A bit fussy temp-wise though — I brewed about 1-2 degrees too hot and 30-45 sec too long and it got bitter that easily.

Flavors: Grass, Strawberry

Sipdown!! (159)

Thank you Dustin for this sweet strawberry tea but I am just not loving the base enough to warrant buying 50g as it is a touch vegetal for my tastes. I certainly enjoyed the sample though and am grateful for the chance to have tried something new.

Oh man this smells crazy good in the bag! It is this intense juicy strawberry smell with a slight tartness. The instructions say to steep it at boiling water for 1-2 minutes which seems really strange for a green tea. I’m doing a lower temp for my first cup. Once steeped the tea smells fine, but the leaves have a hint of canned cat food scent. WTH?!
Sipping now… there is a strong strawberry taste, a little tart with an almost gummi type flavor to it. I’m not crazy about it so far, but I think I’ll try steeping it the way Lupicia suggests and see if that works out any better. When I ordered, I saw that they have a couple types of strawberry flavored tea and I wonder how this variety (the Japanese variety of strawberry) differs from their others.

canned cat food LOL ewwwww

Dustin

I know, right?! I have been having the strangest flavors come out in tea lately. Cat food, smoked lox, baby powder.

I almost got this today but now I’m glad I didn’t :)

It could (and likely is) just me. My sense of smell has been inconsistent lately.

I did do the second steep in boiling water and it was bitter once it cooled. I’m sticking with lower temps for my greens.

you should never really use boiling water for green tea

Just OK. I don’t think strawberry flavor goes well with green tea.

A very good tea. Not as much strawberry flavor as I thought it would have (from the smell), but very good none the less.

I made a ton of this yesterday and then iced it and added a little Christmas Berry honey from http://royalhawaiianhoney.com/ . It was pretty good but I didn’t get much of the strawberry flavor. Next time I’ll steep it hotter—I have a feeling that will help.
