From Lupicia

Tea flavored with strawberry and vanilla and elegantly decorated with rose petals.

From their Nov 2010 newsletter: “It is a delicious tea straight but is also delightful with milk. Just brew a strong cup of CAROL and add several tablespoons of warm milk and top with milk for a cafe style winter treat.”

This is very similar to their year-round Yume blend, just a little less sweet or strong. Smells like delicious strawberry candy, tastes like creamy black tea mixed with strawberries and a hint of astringency on the swallow. Compared to Yume, the flavors are more mellowed out, but they’re both delicious. It just depends how much of a strawberry vanilla mood you’re in. Rating it a smidge lower than I would normally because while the flavor is great, I found it a little bit drying.

This is a really great tea. I’m not really a fan of subtle flavor and this one has a strong strawberry nesquik flavor. I really like it. I don’t even need to add milk and sugar to make it a sweet, creamy treat. I love strawberry vanilla.

The aroma of Strawberries and Vanilla come to mind when steeping this.

At first I thought I couldn’t taste the black tea but its blended well so that it doesn’t stand out. Overall, I like this tea – it is smooth so you barely taste any bitterness.

This would probably taste very good with milk and a bit of sugar.

(note: this does get a bit bitter if over-steeped; be careful with steeping time)

This tea is very flavorful and has powerful aromas of Vanilla and Strawberry. This was a Christmas present and I have nearly completed the bag of loose leaf already. It’s very easy to drink and although it’s a black tea blend it is very relaxing and calming. It’s mildly sweet and very hearty so it stand up well to multiple steeps. I prepared this with my inginuiTEA from Adagio tea as well as in a Manmarukyuusu. Also taste great as an iced tea.
