I gave this tea another shot yesterday while making dinner. Instead of steeping for the recommended 2-3 minutes, I tried 6 in hopes that it would bring out the strawberry more. This time around I also decided not add milk, or sugar until I tried it plain.
The black tea was really strong when I took my first sip, with slight strawberry undertones. It was okay, but definitely needed sugar. After I put about a 1tsp of sugar in it tasted a lot better. Definitely not as creamy as the last time I had it.
I would have still liked the strawberry to be more pronounced in this. I saw that they have a fruit version of this tea as well. Maybe that version is more along the lines of what I was thinking this would be. It’s just not doing it for me. Next time I give this a go I will probably try it iced.
