I received a package (plus) of this from Samantha today!!!! Thanks Samantha! It’s a somewhat mild strength/flavored black tea with strawberries and creami-ness to it. It smells every bit of the name! Lovely to sniff!!!! Very malty and creamy to taste, too. This is a pretty good flavored tea and I am very glad that Samantha sent me some to try! Thanks again!

Such a delicious flavored black tea. As I said in my last tasting note for this, I like whatever SpecialTeas uses as a black base better than whatever Adagio uses (Ceylon, I think?). This tastes and smells like freeze-dried strawberries, with a sweet hint of cream. My sample’s all gone, so I might order more.

Ricky

Okay, I want some! This might of been what I saw in stores. A blend of strawberries and cream. So tempting… must hold back on the spending.

Bethany

Ugh, I know. I’ve been plotting big orders from 2 or 3 e-tailers; it’s so tough to choose which I will actually follow through on! Hopefully there’s some Christmas money in my future..

Ricky

Haha, me too! All the discounts, it’s so tempting. I took a look at my credit card bill, uhoh. All gifts and tea this month. Rishi’s 25% off? Topical Co’s free teapot and 15% off? Harney & Sons free shipping? Lupicia’s spent $30 and get free samplers every month? Andrews & Dunham’s Series 2? The choices! Don’t tempt me further Steepster.

This is one of my favorite fruity teas. Be careful: I first steeped it too long, and this particular blend does not do well with oversteeping. The aftertaste was bitter and overwhelming. That said, if you steep it for only 3-5 minutes, it is heavenly! The strawberry flavor kicks in about halfway through the sip, and lingers nicely. I like this with a healthy serving of sugar or honey and a splash of milk. I think this is an especially great tea for new drinkers.

Enh? Still not really digging on this one… the sweetness doesn’t stand a chance in the face of the black tea’s bitterness. I may try mixing it in a little bit with something else – a tisane perhaps. Lightly berry black tea is all I get. I wish the cream stood out more.

I got a small pack of this, and now I wish I had ordered a bigger batch because it’s almost gone. I drink my tea with a splash of light soy milk and splenda. The taste of this tea brings me right back to childhood when I used to drink Nestle strawberry-flavored milk. So yummy! This tea tastes like a special treat!

As far as black flavored teas go, this one is pretty good. The black tea doesn’t overwhelm the strawberry. The strawberry flavor is strong in the aftertaste. But, even though I only brewed it for 2 1/2 minutes, it seems pretty bitter. I definitely had to add some soy creamer to this to combat the bitterness (but I can still taste it). This was a sample. I don’t think I’ll order more of this. I think that I don’t like it as much because I am comparing it to their Strawberry Cream Fruit Melange which was awesome.

Update – lowering my rating as I threw the rest away when I finished this cup.
