From Teavana

A delicious duet of strawberry-cream and the subtle earthiness of Pu-Erh. A treat for any berry lover who likes the smoothness of a Pu-Erh. Vanilla soy milk will compliment this tea nicely. Good for weight loss and digestion.

How to Prepare
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 195-205 degrees and steep for 3-5 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Ingredients:
Aged black pu-erh tea with dried strawberries and dairy-free cream flavoring.

Aaaahhh it’s so nice to have a good cup of tea and read reviews again. I’ve been on the road and the only tea I have had was out of my libre mug with hot gas station water…
I’m pretty sure this is the tea Lariel sent. It’s the only one that has strawberry and puerh from Teavana. But it’s pretty good! I’ve always thought puerh and strawberry would go nicely together. The strawberry is tart but still sweet in the aftertaste. The puerh earthiness is there and blends well. I reaallyy enjoyed this. Thanks again!

I taste absolutely no pu-erh in this, but perhaps that’s not a bad thing. This tastes straight up like strawberries and cream. Actually, it tastes a lot like SpecialTeas’ Strawberry Cream, which is delicious.

Thanks for the sample, wombatgirl!

You know, the names of these teas make Teavana sound like one of those cheap, snake-oil diet plans.

Bethany

Ugh, I know. It’s really unfortunate, because they do have some pretty great teas – but everything is marketed for their supposedly amazing health effects.

Jillian

I’ve heard that too (among other things) about Teavana. I wonder how much of it (if any) is backed up by peer-reviewed scientific research? -And what ever happened to enjoying tea just for its own sake?

Cofftea

Some information I got from Rishi says Pu Erh helps metabolize fatty acids and oily foods, may reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, and is cleansing and detoxifying to the blood stream. Unlike a lot of health benefits that are true of all true teas, these seem to be pu erh specific.

First “Thanks” TeaEqualsBliss for sending me so many wonderful tea samples.

I really enjoyed this tea. I taste the earthiness of the Puerh first and at the back end the sweet and creaminess of the strawberry. I delicious tea will have to try iced.

Great tea…Can’t wait to try the rest of my samples.

SoccerMom sent me some of this and I remember having it a while back and enjoyed it more than most Pu-erh’s…so thank you very much SoccerMom!!! :P

The aroma of this one is really what makes it for me! Woot!

Lori

The “weight-to-go” by Teavana is even better- a combo of strawbery and mint….

My friend had me buy this tea for her during my recent trip to teavana and it smelled so good at the store, I almost bought some too, but I decided just to try some of hers instead. It has such a yummy strawberry scent, like strawberry bubblicious gum. I was so excited to try it, but the excitement left upon my first sip. YUCK! The strawberry flavour is awful! Very artificial and perfumey. I ended up dumping half of the cup out which I rarely do. I will stick to my David’s Love Tea #7 :)

Okay. I went to Teavana (right around the corner from my place) for the first time. After smelling a bunch of teas that didn’t make any real impression and after complaining about the 50g limit on their loose teas, the “nice” guy at the counter gave me a “free” sample of this to try.

It’s brewing right now…

First of all, let me just say that I do not enjoy Teavana. Or at least the one near my house. 50g limit? WTF? So I countered with… Hey did you know that Davids has an ADVENT CALENDAR??? Like, you can try a bunch of teas every day to see if you like them. He said it was snappy marketing. I said, they must really love their customers…

Anyhow, I asked for 50g of three different teas. He gave me 60g, 80g and 70g of three different teas… guess he doesn’t mind me paying more, does he!?? ARGH.

Anyhow, back to this tea.

The liquor is a very dark, amber colour and smells distinctly of strawberry. I really like pu’erh based flavoured tea, so I am really looking forward to taking the first sip and really really hope that I taste strawberries. Right now it looks like coffee and smells like dessert. Not too bad a combo in my books. We’ll see how it tastes… here goes…

CRAP! I brewed it too long.

It’s fruity, but the base really over-powers it quite a bit. I like it, but I need milk and sugar to make this work, I think.

I think I will like this tea if I don’t mess it up next time. I will log this again on my second attempt.

Odd. Kind of good and revolting at the same time. Better in small doses.

Can’t say I’d buy it or recommend it.

And I really hate selling teas based on the idea that they help you lose weight. Strawberry Slender? Come on…

I buy this every once in awhile when I feel like I can’t deal with drinking straight pu-erh any longer, but having worked my way through two ounces now I can’t quite recall why I keep thinking it’s any better. Maybe because I usually have it with milk, and right now I’m just drinking it straight, so I’m getting hit full on with that dusty old flavor that some pu-erhs have. I’m not getting any strawberry at all from this cup, which is weird because you can easily see all kinds of pretty strawberry bits in the tea itself. Where did they go? Did the pu-erh eat them?

Also I’ve now had Lupicia’s Chocolate and Strawberry Pu-erh, which is basically what this tea wants to be in terms of yummy flavoring, but isn’t. Advice: if you want a sweeter flavored pu-erh, buy that instead of this, it is about eight times yummier and I think they even use a better quality base tea.

Tried this iced today – I’m still pretty meh on it.
The strawberry flavor is very light and immediately overtaken by this…other flavor right before you swallow. I think it is the puerh.
I think I might not like puerh, if that is the case.
I’m pretty sure that I’m done with this tea – I just don’t have the patience to tweak it when I have another strawberry tea (52tea’s strawberry pie honeybush) that is so much more to my tastes.

It took a while for me to get used to the smokiness of this blend, but now that I have, it’s one of my favorites.
