From Teavana

Imagine luscious peaks of whipped cream brightened with slices of ripe strawberries. Now enjoy the same flavors without any guilt, in this rich and dairy-free dessert treat, served on a snowy white tea base. A creamy, strawberry dream indeed!

Lush strawberries and sweet cream

So I made this one as a cold brew. Not remembering that I made it as a cold brew back in February. And re-reading my old tasting notes, I didn’t like it then. And guess what, I don’t like it now. Ha ha.

I brewed it for about 10 hours. I did not notice until I stopped brewing it that the first ingredient in the tea is hibiscus. I do not favour hibiscus, but it really depends on the blend. I do not like hibiscus hot, but I really do not like it cold brewed at all.

This one turned out a beautiful red hibiscus colour. At first it was extremely tart, I couldn’t taste anything other than fruity tartness. I added a whole bunch of sugar. I didn’t measure, just dumped it in from the sugar bowl. That definitely helped. Still tart, but quite toned down with the sugar. The sugar did not make it too sweet because there was so much tartness. There is a strawberry taste to it, but not a sweet strawberry, like a tart, not quite ripe strawberry. It is not as creamy cold as it is hot. Like I said in my previous tasting note, which I forgot about, I prefer this one hot.

So this was one of the Teavana teas that ActUALLY arrived from my last order.
I nearly wish it hadn’t. :P I forgot about the hibiscus when I steeped it and now it’s just a little too tart. But it smells like strawberry cream. Beautifuly, tantalizing strawberry cream….

I’m hoping that a shorter steep time will tame the hibiscus. If not, then cold-steeping. I don’t have too much of this at least.

I ALMOST picked this one up during their sale until I saw the hibiscus. So glad I didn’t now!

Cavocorax

Yeah. :( Well, I only paid a little for it so it could have been worse…

I was scared to try this tea due to my lack of success with other Teavana teas. This is the last tea out of my teavana purchase 6 weeks ago that I am trying, it didn’t excite me even before I purchased it, I only bought it because it was on clearance.

This tea is heavy on the fruit, I am not seeing a lot of tea in my bag which really bothers me, because their prices don’t reflect the lack of tea. The flavour is good, but artificial, which is not surprising coming from Teavana. I also cannot taste any of the base at all.

Although this tea is enjoyable, I would not purchase it again because there are far better strawberry teas out there. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing any tea from Teavana again because I find their teas have very little actual tea, their flavours are artificial and you can’t purchase less than 50 grams of a tea.

I love strawberry teas and this one from Teavana does not disappoint. It is still not as good as the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait from Davids but still good. It has a sweet cream flavor that I rather like. It tastes like a warm strawberry yogurt. Again not as good or as cheap as the tea from DT so changes are I won’t be buying it again, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

This tea is… decent.
I am not particularly a fan of hibiscus teas so I had a hard time convincing myself to give this one a try because the first ingredient on the ingredients list is “hibiscus flowers,” which is too bad since it’s a white tea. I can’t say I was too happy about that but I eventually did end up buying a 50g bag for myself, considering the list of ingredients mirrored the list of my favourite strawberry tea (Teaopia’s Strawberry Fields) almost perfectly.
The smell of this tea dry is just heavenly. It smells like fresh strawberries topped with a huge dollop of cream, but there was a faint apple scent as well. Once steeped, the smell becomes a lot more syrupy/sugary. It smells… artificial. This was a big letdown but I decided to base my judgment on the taste test and not the smell. And that’s where the true letdown happened.
Hibiscus. Hibiscus everywhere. Hibiscus really took the wheel with this tea and almost completely overpowered the fruity notes. It is definitely less pronounced when cooled down, but the strawberry flavour that comes through then is definitely not as Pow! Fresh In Your Face Strawberry! as I had hoped. It’s quite artificial tasting. This is not necessarily a bad thing. I can see this tea being quite wonderful brewed with a lemonade or with a few shavings of frozen lemon added to it (which I will try next) but a substitute/rival to Strawberry Fields it is not. Someone on the Teavana site mentioned that cutting down the tea to around 1/2 to 3/4 a teaspoon greatly reduces the artificial flavour so I’m not giving up on this tea just yet.
This tea is not as delicate and light as I would expect from a white tea, which is disappointing considering the price tag, but I think there’s a great tea hiding here, just maybe a little fussy.

Quite tart with an artificial strawberry flavour. That being said, I think it would make a nice iced tea with a bit of sweetener. My main issue with it is the back of creaminess. I like really creamy teas, so this was a disappointment.

I like that it steeps a pinky red colour.

i’m not sure if i’ll try this. i haven’t ordered from them in ages

Kirkoneill1988

they got a store in st. catharinnes, ontario. canada

My friend gave me this sample, so I didn’t buy it myself. They certainly are not my favourite tea company because of their high prices and questionable hiring practices. I like a few of their teas though. I wouldn’t recommend buying this particular strawberry cream tea though, because there are several better ones.

Kirkoneill1988

after looking up the tea, i have tried it (my apologies). it was good stuff. i think it tasted more like those strawberry candies that come in a wrapper that looked like a strawbery

Arby Robilliard

Yeah, there was not a lot of cream or black tea flavour. I do like strong fruity teas, but I didn’t like that it wasn’t the creamy black tea it advertised itself as.

Kirkoneill1988

i’m not much for black teas unless its lapsang souchong:

I was looking forward to trying my sample of this tea, because I’m into strawberry teas right now. But unfortunately this didn’t quite meet my expectations for some reason. It didn’t really taste much like strawberry to me, it tasted more like raspberry or something… So, I’m a little disappointed that it didn’t live up to my taste.

Vom. This is one of the worst teas I’ve ever tried. Smelled like butter and somehow tasted neither like strawberries or cream. Super sour. So unpleasant.

Ugh. another tea ruined with too much hibiscus. Just my opinion, but I think a lot of tea blends go overboard on the hibiscus, especially fruity teas, this is no exception. I do like the creamy aftertaste of this, but the hibiscus just overpowers all the other flavors.

I’ll save you all the disappointment. Tastes like hibiscus. And it is nearly identical to Davidstea’s Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. I expected a more sophisticated taste since it’s a delicate white tea base, and David’s is straight up fruit.

I’m thinking a splash of vanilla soy milk might make it nicer, or maybe as a latte… Or I say screw it, brew it all as a great big jug of iced tea and let the husband have at it.

I won’t rate this low because I’m only disappointed that it didn’t have a more complexed and unique flavour – my own fault. And for the price that I paid I should just shut up and drink my tea.
