I actually really liked this tea. I usually have a problem with flavoured black teas, as the black tea base can be either too strong or overpowered by the flavoring. This tea, upon opening, has a powerful “candy” strawberry scent. This made me nervous at first.
Once I brewed the tea, though, I was pleasantly suprised! I could taste the black tea base, but it wasn’t so powerful that I couldn’t taste the strawberry/vinilla flavor. The strawberry isn’t over powering, and the vinilla is soft, but definately detectable. It was a good combination. Now I buy this around the holidays; it’s a nice treat after dinner.

Started brewing loose leaf tea about seven years ago. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Green Teas
Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Pu-erh’s
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Matcha and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, working, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’ve only just returned after quite some time away – Steepster stopped working for me in 2013 and I FINALLY remembered this password and was able to get back on here in 2017. But I’ve been drinking tea all along the way!

Happy steeping!
