Thanks to MeghannM I had the opportunity to sample this tea. The black tea looks promising with the dried berries and the peppercorns, but there was not much of an aroma. I guess that unless the peppercorns are at least somewhat broken, they may be there only for decorative effect or to provide the smallest nuance of flavour.
The brewed tea is another example of what I would call a “pleasant” tea. A “pleasant” tea is certainly better than the average tea-bag but does not really stand out as a memorable experience. This tea certainly has some berry taste and perhaps a shade of piquancy but it’s no better than adequate. The more I drink tea, the more I realize that there’s no reason to settle for adequate when there are so many exceptional teas out there.
This might be worthy of a try for fans of strawberry for an afternoon refreshment.
