My first tea from the 12 HoliDays collection! I picked the order that I’m going to drink them according to what I “thought” would be my favorite. I have to say I was pretty disappointed in this tea.

The dry leaves smell of heavenly strawberry and cream. After steeping the liquid smells identical to the dry leaves. The color is a nice dark pink color.

Unfortunately that is where the excitement ends. The tea tastes completely of the hibiscus. There is a slight taste of strawberry afterward, but not enough to really say there’s strawberry in there. I also found it extremely tart. I don’t mind hibiscus tea, but this one was advertised as strawberry so I think that should be the first note I detect.

Too bad, this tea could’ve been a hit! Possibly if they adjusted the blend to have less hibiscus it might work. I might mix this with an oolong or something or try iced as I have enough for about a 16oz cup left.

So, this will not be added to my I NEED IT list!

Bummer the name of the flavor sounds amazing! Too bad it didn’t live up to the name!

Hibiscus ruins so many teas. What a bummer – this one did sound promising!

I feel like a lot of the Teavana herbals/flavored teas I’ve tried have been heavily hibiscus-flavored. Someone over at corporate must love it.

@Claire – and not care that consumers don’t! LOL – I think you’ve solved that riddle…

Just call me Sherlock. ;)

I suspect the ‘new’ Strawberry Cream tea is actually a repackaged, marginally adjusted version of this tea because I’ve had the same experience with that tea that you describe here. To a T. Hibiscus everywhere with a somewhat artificial strawberry aftertaste. The colour and smell is to die for. The flavour? Not so much. Sadly, most of the strawberry offerings from Teavana are sore misses for me :(

As everyone else seems to say… Good aroma but very tart hibiscus flavor. Where’s the strawberry? I guess I should have read the tasting notes but I was in the store… it was on sale 75% off… It smelled good so I bought it. A mistake. Anyone have an idea of what it could be blended with that would cover the hibiscus/rose hips?

This was sooooo tart. Way too much hibiscus in it, tasted just like the jamaica juice at Maui Tacos. If only I knew how to make horchata then I could cut it half and half like I buy from there and it’d be awesome. I got no strawberry cream taste at all…

Hibiscus is the first ingredient and thus it is very strong. There is a slight taste of strawberry/creme but not enough to give it it’s name. Hibiscus snow creme would be a more accurate title. The dry smell is good but nothing to swoon over.
