I scored a sample of this from my sister. I am happy she purchased it becuase I most likely would have never bought it on my own. She continues to make fun of me for my tea obsession, but I think that secretly her obsession is nearing mine.

This tea smells exactly like Teavana’s Strawberry Cream, but it does not taste the same. For starters this Davids Tea is a herbal (Teavana’s is a white tea). The beet root gives it a beautiful ruby red colour. It smells like delicious strawberries and cream, and smells so sweet. But it does not taste very sweet at all. I did not add any sweetener to it, but I will have to next time. I think I will let it steep a little less time next time as well. It is on the verge of being bitter. I almost taste green rhubarb, not red. It has a strawberry taste to it, but it is an artificial taste. It is very creamy, which I like, but I dislike that the creamy taste comes from an artificial flavour.

Overall I am happy with how this tea tastes. I think it makes a great herbal, and would make a great iced or cold brewed tea. I would also like to try belding it with some green or white tea. Not as sweet as I had anticipated, but I can easily fix that :)

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
