drank Strawberry Cheesecake by Red Rose
2880 tasting notes

Our facilities director is a tea guy and when he’s in the building, often drops by a bag or two of something for me to try. You’d like him.

So today’s try-it-you’ll-like it was my first flirt ever with anything but straight-up Red Rose. He did warn me: “If you sweeten your tea, don’t.” I don’t anyway, but I appreciated the heads-up…it was so candy-sweet I winced. Thank you, stevia. Once I got past that, it did remind me of the little four-inch round cheesecake dessert cups you can get at the Walmart deli, but I wasn’t enjoying it hot at all. A little ice made it more like a non-carbonated Fanta or Welch’s strawberry soda.

Not one I’ll hunt down for myself, but it might have some possibilities as one to ice down and garnish in the summer.

I make lots of offers, but most of the coworkers aren’t very adventurous.
