This tea is so yummy! When I was a kid, little wild strawberries grew all over my grandmothers property in the mountains of North Carolina. We’d go out and pick them by the bucketload and then my grandmother would make strawberry cobbler with drop biscuit dumplings. That is exactly what this tea tastes like. It’s like biting into warm cooked strawberries that are sweet and slightly tart. I only have a sample of this and I’m sure it will be gone in no time but it will definitely be on my reorder list. I have to say that I am normally disappointed in fruit herbals, but this one is great.
I added a touch of agave nectar to this before I even tasted it. It probably doesn’t need it.
Steeped 10 min as suggested on package. Used 2 tsp for about 11 oz.
Update – as it is cooling, I am starting to pick up some floral notes, but they are definitely background flavors.
Update – had to lower my rating as the whole bag that I got after this sample does not taste the same. The whole bag is much more floral.
