This is one of the teas I didn’t see on Bluebird’s site a couple days ago. It’s about a year old now so it probably won’t be a fair review as the tea isn’t the freshest. But I needed to write a note anyway! This is a gorgeous looking blend of green tea, lots of colors, strawberry bits, orange petals, and the cutest star sprinkles. I think the flavor was a little better a year ago… more of a strawberry split flavor as the name suggests. But now the hibiscus takes over a little bit. Maybe I need to use the precise amount of leaves. I wish the hibiscus would have been cut from this! It would have been much tastier. I might be able to pick out the hibiscus from the infuser in the future. I couldn’t even taste the green tea, just a mild hibiscus flavor both steeps. Such a promising blend that leads to disappointment.
