From Adagio Teas

Strawberry black tea combines the succulent taste of sweet strawberries with bright Ceylon black tea. Fresh sweet-floral and berry flavor, smooth and sugary texture. It’s a treat you’ll want to keep for yourself!

Nothing spells summer like plump, juicy strawberries! This fruit (Fragararia x ananassa) is grown everywhere and China, the U.S. and Mexico are the top producers. Pity the folks prior to the 18th century who never tasted the sweet taste of summer called strawberries. Strawberries are unique because all its seeds are on the outside. Yep, those little bumps on the skin of the strawberry are seeds. Loaded with Vitamin C and antioxidants, they’re delicious plain, dipped in chocolate, sliced over cereal or whipped into creamed cheese for a scrumptious tea sandwich spread. Try Strawberry Tea; your mouth will say, “Ahhhhh!”

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.

Ahhhh! Here’s my Black Flavored Tea for the day! I’m typing as I taste. As soon as you open the tin the Dried Strawberry Scent fills my nose and my work cubicle. What a lovely scent! It pretty much stays true thru steeping. I made sure I didn’t oversteep as suggested by more than one of our follow steepsters! It’s not a very strong black tea taste it’s more of a medium strength. The Strawberry addition is very nice. It blends well and I like it. I must say my favorite part of this tea is the aroma. I will certainly be sipping this again tho…thumbs up!

A lowered steeping time and a bit of milk to smooth out the taste of the Ceylon base still don’t really help develop the strawberry flavour all that much. This still mostly tastes like a typical Ceylon black tea with a bit strawberry at the end of each sip.

Hmmm, I’m almost out of this. Seems I drink it a lot

Needed a good ole flavored tea I could trust today. Nothing that I had to think too hard to enjoy since I am lacking brain activity today. I have decided in my next life I will not work with young human creatures for the sole reason that they seem to carry nasty germs around. And I always catch them. (As a side note, I do love my middle schoolers. I really do.)

So to comfort my poor immune system, I am consuming a large amount of strawberry tea and peanut butter cookies. The two of them actually compliment each other very well.

I’m enjoying this iced. This was my last of the sample, though, and I’m quite sad to see it go.


I have a sample of this and I still haven’t tried it…. I may have a go at it then…

I like when they send me free samples. This happened to be one of them. Mmm… berries. The scent is nice. Kinda reminds me of jam, at first. And the flavour is more mild. Maybe needs vanilla (but I say that about many things).

This is the first time I’ve tried one of Adagio’s standard flavoured black teas. Initially, they seem fairly impressive. The dry leaves smell very strongly of strawberry, and I can see pieces of fruit among the black tea base. Closer inspection of the ingredients list reveals that the fruit pieces are actually raspberry, but I probably wouldn’t have known. They smell right, and that’s what counts. What they’ll ultimately contribute to the flavour remains to be seen.

I brewed this tea a little bit longer than the recommended time – more like 4 minutes than 3. It still smells wonderfully of strawberries, although there’s an underlying “green” scent I can’t quite identify. This carries through to the flavour, too, but I don’t mind it as it’s quite fresh and complements the creaminess of the strawberry pretty well.

I’m actually pretty pleased with the taste of this tea. Before this, I’d only tried Adagio’s holiday flavoured blacks, and I wasn’t universially impressed. This one is strawberry all right, and it comes through pretty well. The base tea isn’t too strong or astringent. It’s all just fine. I have a couple more of these in my stash, so I’m interested to try those as well now. Overall, a good experience. A pleasant afternoon quaffing tea.

Sample time. Some fruits are meant to be eaten with cream. This is one, and so I brew it with cream and sugar :) The smell is really grabbing at my nose. Tasty and smooth. The strawberry doesn’t overpower the tea at all and it actually blends wonderfully.

Strawberries are an interesting flavor. Either you get it really right and it turns out delicious or you get it wrong and it is a disaster. I love the actual fruit, so I am very particular when it comes to flavoring.

I had tried this tea a few years ago, and I had the vague memory that I enjoyed it, so in my Adagio order of the moment, in went Strawberry. The dry tea doesn’t smell like strawberries at all to me. It smelled sweet and hinted of generic berry. It wasn’t a bad smell, but definitely a miss in terms of strawberry flavor!

As I have mentioned before (in my other reviews), Adagio’s black tea base tends to be a bit bitter if brewed for any longer than 3 minutes. I am now very careful to brew 2.5 minutes or 3 minutes at the very most. So, I used 2 teaspoons in 16oz of water and brewed away. The water developed a dark caramel color rather quickly and then transitioned to dark brown/maroon. The smell I was getting from the brew was still not strawberry. I could smell tea, sweetness (sugary smelling), and a bit of generic berry (leaning towards a “berry punch” smell). Not thrilling.

The taste was no better. I tasted only sweet black tea, and after I swallowed there was a bit of something trying to be strawberry lingering on my tongue. I did end up sweetening it with brown sugar, and it was muuuuch better that way. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t call it strawberry per se.

Drinkable, not re-orderable. I still have to try it iced, I will post when I get around to it.

As a side note, I do have memories of liking if a few years ago and I have shared this tea with non tea drinkers previously and they loved it. So if you think you would enjoy it, I will not try to persuade you away from trying it! : )

Nice aroma but (Bethanny is correct) the ceylon black base Adagio uses leaves something no not something ALOT to be desired. If they would just change the ceylon base their flavored blacks could be much more enjoyable. I won’t rate it yet since it seems some other reviews say 3 minutes instead of 4 minutes (I used 4 minutes) and see if that takes away the bitterness of the ceylon.


Maybe this is why I don’t like Adagio’s hazelnut…
