This tea is quite a floral strawberry tea. The top note is a mix of rose and safflower, with the safflower dominant to the rose with its watermelon note this blends with a strawberry cream with the raspberry note appearing last and dominating the aftertaste. The strawberry noteis of tart ripe strawberries that have been cut and allowed to heat up in the sun a little bit. The base tea is a broken large leaf Ceylon which adds a bitterness that counterbalances the lightness of the flavouring and provides enough body to take milk. It also has a citrus note to it. The tea is not that astringent but it is quite tannic though this too is counterbalanced by the cream in the flavouring. A nice blend of flavours and a nice change from the usual strawberry vanilla or strawberry caramel.

This sounds delicious. Where did you even get it though?

I ended up getting at Starsky’s a Baltic style grocery store at the Winston Churchill and Dundas location. They have 3 location in Mississauga, and Hamilton, but I’m not sure what is available at the other locations. They had a huge tea aisle with tons of loose tea from Polish companies and a few local ones. Occasionally I have seen it at HomeSense. Occassionally I’ve seen their teas at other independant grocery stores. There is a US online store but they don’t seem to offer this series of tea on it. Only their mnatures harmony series. There seems to be two distributors in the area who might either be able to sell to you directly or direct you to someone selling it:
