There is a very strong and tasty note of the strawberry to this tea. It does not taste artificial to me either. I think this was made using real strawberries and first flush tea. The black tea base is somewhat muted behind the strawberries. There is little in the way of bitterness or astringency to this tea.
I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 190 degree water for 3 min.
