This is a blend of green tea, vanilla and rum flavors accented with sliced strawberries. You won’t get into any trouble with this one. Makes a great iced tea!

Some people bang themselves over their heads with 2×4s. I keep trying flavored green teas. When will I learn?

I placed this order for samples from The NecessiTeas mostly to try some of their flavored blacks since my success rate with their greens had been so low, but while I was at it, I went ahead and ordered samples of the greens I hadn’t yet tasted. There were only three, so it didn’t seem overly masochistic.

Having experienced more and different kinds of green tea between my original set of samples and this one, I can now make some observations about the tea I wasn’t prepared to make then. I now recognize the green base (at least for this tea) as sencha. It has the leaf shape, and yields the green/yellow liquor color with little particles suspended in it I recognize from my Den’s sampler experience.

This tea, however, doesn’t have anything like the flavor that the Den’s had. There is no juicy, vegetal goodness — it’s just a green whisper in the background. The main flavor is strawberry, but it isn’t a robust strawberry, certainly not the strawberry I would expect in a daiquiri. It, too, is a mere whisper. To be more precise, it’s not even really strawberry so much as a vague strawberry-flavored sweetness, like a Jolly Rancher that’s been dissolved in at least a bathtub’s worth of water. This is unfortunate, because in the packet, the dry mixture smelled promising — a strong strawberry flavor and an identifiable undercurrent of rum.

There was no appreciable difference in flavor after steeping 1.5 minutes as opposed to 1 minute.

Well, I for one am glad that you went the masochistic tea route vs. banging your head repeatedly ;)

Ugh I’ve been looking for a in your face strawberry tea too and haven’t found it yet!

Strawberry Sencha by TeaLuxe was pretty strongly strawberry, if you’re still looking :) then again, the cup I tried was severely oversteeped….but it seemed like it would be strongly strawberry flavored even if it wasnt oversteeped :)
