Almost every single tea with the word ‘love’ in it has strawberries, so when I saw that this one was free of them, I had to grab a small bag to see what I was missing. Or, I’m hoping there’s zero strawberry in here… Tealish’s ingredient lists are usually AWOL other than the describe flavorings.
Out of the bag, this smells like a juicy melange of fruit and green tea. Steeped it smells more like currants and spice. My first sips are tentative – are we sure there aren’t any strawberries in here? – and I’m having a hard time telling. There’s something making my lips and tongue tingle, however it could well be the red peppercorns I saw in the mix. It takes like currants with a bit of spice for the most part, with hints of roasty green tea in the background and the finish.
It’s nice and pleasant, and while I do enjoy it, I’m still focused on the possibility of strawberries in here. I’m off to go email Tealish and ask them.
