First time having this tea. Brewed for 3 mins in boiling water.
The dry leaves smell exactly like a strawberry shortcake. I would eat it if i could. The leaves are shiny and heavy as if there is a lot of artificial flavoring - although you can already tell that by the smell.
The brewed tea – smells more like a black tea and less like a dessert.
The taste of the tea is like strawberry flavored cake or cookies— not ones that use fresh strawberry . This would be good with some milk and sugar ,which might help enhance the strawberry flavor and give you the creaminess of a cake.
I am drinking this tea plain and it is perfectly fine. The black tea is smooth and very refreshing. The aftertaste of this tea leaves a wonderful artificial strawberry flavor.
If you have ever eaten the pink frosting/ strawberry flavored cream biscuits or pocky sticks, that’s the artificial strawberry flavor I am getting.
