This was another sent in my swap with KittyLovesTea.

This one had quite a low steeping temperature as per the parameters KittyLovesTea sent. I actually steeped it at 158 F/70 C, which wasn’t on the temperature bar.

The scent is strongly strawberry, but the taste is slightly more diminished, which is better. There is a definite creaminess here, I can only assume from the yogurt. The creaminess is delightful. I’ve never had sea buckthorn, but I’m enjoying the tea so let’s say that part is awesome too. The green base works great here and the base and flavours seem to compliment each other well here, nothing is too overwhelming or underwhelming.

I have another to try from this company from the swap as well. Also with sea buckthorn. I hope it turns out just as well.

Thanks KittyLovesTea!

Update: Their website has some interesting sounding teas. I’ve sent off an email to see if they offer shipping to Canada. I would discover this company just after my friend leaves Sweden.

I’m not sure if this is the same tea as this one: http://steepster.com/teas/kahls/30691-kustfagring. I guess it’s possible Bönor & blad sell teas from Kahls, or maybe this is just one of those common blends I never realize is a common blend until I’ve come across it in fifteen different stores.

Either way, this is really excellent everyday tea. The pleasant, mellow fruitiness of any good sea-buckthorn tea is highly present both in the bag and the cup. The yoghurt and strawberry come together nicely, lending the flavour a sweet creaminess with hints of vanilla.

It’s not a very complex tea, but it’s smooth and round and well put together.

Decent re-steep.

Thank you Anna for this sample. Again I think this was a EUTTB round 1 sample?

The raw blend smells very sweet and strawberry like, reminds me of the gummy sweets. Got a touch of something creamy in there too like vanilla.

The strawberry is less sweet and more sour in taste but there is a yoghurt feel about it which I’m thinking is why. I used to eat strawberry pieces with yoghurt from a health food store and this tea is very similar, main difference is the tea is less sweet. You can also taste the green tea base which is a little grassy and astringent, though I say it’s the base but it could be the sea-buckthorn.

I like this blend, don’t think I would buy it but would happily drink it again.
