I feel like this tea got a bum rap, mostly because it was part of the Malt Shop Collection which was kind of a weird interstitial one that didn’t actually seem to have a lot to do with ice cream minus the names. For instance, Strawberry Shake tastes far more like a strawberry green tea than it does some sort of shake. Being a green tea it also doesn’t really lend itself to being mixed with dairy, which would’ve potentially made it ice creamier…
All that being said, it’s a perfectly nice blend in and of itself. It’s a sweet strawberry with some rather subtle vanilla undertones and a nice, sort of dry green tea finish. I like it best iced with no sweetener.
I’m happy I’ve got a skinny tin of this, but I doubt I’d want much more. If you go into this tea expecting it to taste like a strawberry milkshake, you’ll be disappointed – but if you go in expecting a light, sweet strawberry green tea, you’ll be happy!
