Ever drive to Wichita? Don’t bother, we took care of it for you. Hot, flat, and highly unexciting…which is why hubby pulled into a World Market on the way out of town so it would at least feel like we had a little whimsy on the trip.

And there this was. It had me at strawberry and the rubber duck on the box. I didn’t even look at the ingredient list, which includes a couple of my unfavorites—hibiscus and licorice.

But you know what? They are barely noticeable in this luscious and remarkably strawberry little surprise. I don’t do alcohol, so I can’t tell you if the daiquiri part of it is flavor-accurate, but this is pleasant and strong on the strawberry. (Most of you know how much I love good strawberry tea.)

Have had one cup hot, one cup chilled. Just right both times. A little sugar and it would taste like Kool-Aid for grownups. Perfect on a triple-digit, fry-yer-eyeballs week.

Wichita, Wichita—in my Canadian imagination, it sounds like a good theme for a Country song.

This post delighted me, by the way. Who can argue with strawberry and a rubber duck on the box. And the silencing of liquorice wins me over as well.

What are your favourite strawberry teas, gmathis?

This one: https://steepster.com/teas/tradtradition-slash-good-youngition-slash-good-young/27463-strawberry-black-tea … which, alas, I can’t find locally any more. Three bags in a mason jar in the fridge—summer lawn mowing thirst quenching goodness.

And this one: https://savoytea.com/collections/puerh-teas/products/chocolate-kiss Little fancier with chocolate and pu-erh. Strawberry bonbons.

Wichita’s claim to commerce is aerospace, as it is a small city a million miles of flatness from anywhere. Boeing, an air force base, other miscellaneous small plane manufacturers. Cornfields on the outskirts of town. ONE two-lane state highway (with occasional passing zones far too far apart) in from Missouri. But then, it has a World Market. I don’t!

Thank you. This one makes me happy. Now if only Zen Tea were to start selling it again. https://steepster.com/teas/zen-tea/30490-strawberry-cream

Mmm! Dessert after a spinach and strawberry salad with honey/apple cider dressing…you’re welcome to come over for a snack as long as you promise not to make fun of my filthy kitchen.

Thank you. The very next time I am in Missouri.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
