Good bright fruity herbal tea. Had a nice light aroma of strawberries with overtones of lemon; not as much strawberry flavor as I would have liked, instead having a stronger lemon finish. Good with honey.

Even when the strawberry harvest is waning for the year, our Wild Strawberry herbal blend will have you smiling like the first pick of the season. Fresh strawberries, apple pieces, hibiscus flowers and rose hips create a mellow, almost dessert-like tea. Sweet strawberry and sugared rhubarb aroma, beautiful warm berry color, pleasantly aromatic and not super sweet. A caffeine-free cup of pure delight.
Ingredients: rose hips, hibiscus flowers, apple pieces, natural strawberry flavor, strawberries, raspberry leaves

When I received my new package of samples from Adagio, the AC was out at my place, so I decided to begin with this tea, cold-brewed and heavily sugared. The resultant beverage was a pretty pink tisane that smelled like strawberry gummies. It was sweet and light, with a good strong strawberry flavor (though I would have preferred it to be a little stronger). It was a bit too heavy on the apple for my taste, but over all, it made for a tasty and refreshing iced tea—a nice escape from the heat of an apartment without air conditioning in Florida!
I’m not a big tisane fan, but I’ve been looking for a late-night tea that will work for me before I go to bed. My stomach is really sensitive to tea at night largely because of the meds I’m on. Even so, I thought I’d buy a sample and brew it up.
It’s actually a pretty good tisane. Lots of strawberry flavor and the apple adds quite a bit of body to it. I added natural cane sugar because I tend to think of tisanes as weak, but this works pretty well. Better than most. I may have to buy it for the evenings.
I’m glad that I took enough of this tea to try it iced as well as hot, because cold it’s miles away a better drink. I did it up the lazy way where I brewed a cup, sweetened it with a spoonful of local honey and let it cool in the fridge. It literally tastes like fresh strawberries were juiced into my glass. I’m not sure whether it was the temperature or the honey that tamed the hibiscus but thankfully it’s barely an afterthought. So tasty and thirst-quenching. I’ll have to buy more now that Adagio has (finally!) lowered their international shipping rates.
First off, it smells terrific! Like candy and super fresh strawberries!!
First impression: very bitter, incredibly bland. Use more tsp or less water next time?
After adding sugar: tart, fruity, a bite of bitter. Good herbal tea, but kind of weak- not much of a bouquet, but still good.
— loose tea w/ infuser
— 3 sugar cubes

Jeweled Thumb was kind enough to add some of her healthy lemonade teas into the TTB for us all to try: a combination of Adagio’s Green Citron, Wild Strawberry, and Lemongrass. Being lazy and not wanting to wait for the water to cool to brew the green, I altered the recipe and did two parts wild strawberry and one part lemongrass and then poured it over ice. The result? A fruity start to the sip which slowly gives way to a touch of hibby tartness only to end on a crisp lemon note. It’s actually quite interesting though I feel I may have been better off going with a 1:1 ratio of each tea. Ultimately I probably won’t drink this again but it was certainly fun to try. Thanks Jeweled Thumb!
All the sample sipdowns! Thank you to whoever sent me this one. I cold brewed it for about 24 hours. The funny thing is this tastes exactly like a summer strawberry. It’s got that light sweet tart\juiciness thing going on. The juicy sweetness hits first and then a light tartness lingers for a second. Very refreshing! I’d love to mix this with some lemonade in the summer!
