I received this tea in a huge box that Doulton sent me … THANK YOU so much! This is definitely one that I would have wanted to buy just because it sounds a little different!

It is very nice. The rooibos tastes nutty and a little woody but doesn’t have the funky aftertaste or saccharine sweetness to it. The strawberry is delicious … the addition of the pepper is just the right touch to cut through some of the sweeter notes while still allowing the berry flavor to come through.

I like this.


I think this is the first I’ve heard of pepper in tea and I must say I’m now very interested to try some.


Pepper is often an ingredient in chai blends too.


I’ve never picked up the flavor of it in any of the chai teas I have tried in the past. Good to know, thank you!

It’s nearly the New Year here on the East Coast, so I decided to relax a little bit before the party I have to attend and have some caffeine-free stuff. So I pulled out more TG stuff, specifically, Strawberry Pepper.

When I heard that they had a strawberry pepper tea, I leapt at the chance to try it! I love it when sweet blends with savory (an aside: if you’ve ever had Moroccan food, they do a great job of blending the two), so I couldn’t pass this up. The leaves smell pretty much entirely of strawberry. It’s a very juicy-tart strawberry. Not particularly overly sweet, like a vanilla-strawberry. Just a plain strawberry. There’s a bit of a rooibos smell underlying the tea. Not very strong, but it’s present.

It steeps up to a very pretty strawberry-red, and the smell coming off the cup is a deep, juicy strawberry. So if you like strawberries, this will definitely get you pumped to taste it. The taste… is interesting! It’s actually a bit more watery than I expected it to be. I wanted a more robust strawberry taste. I might need to steep this a bit longer, even though I steeped it at the amount that TG suggested. The rooibos flavor is completely overwhelmed by the strawberryness. There’s flashes of subtle woodsy sweet, but it’s really just a base to hold up the strawberry flavor.

As for the pepper… it didn’t really come out strong in this cup. There was a slight tingling sensation on my tongue, but it wasn’t a flavor. It was more of a feeling. Maybe my peppercorns all dipped to the bottom of the bag, but I made sure to shake it. Maybe I just didn’t get enough of the peppercorn in there. Anyway, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t manifest itself as a full flavor, but rather as a bit of heat.

I’m not the biggest fan of strawberries, and I tend to like them somewhat on the sweeter side, or mixed with something creamy (like vanilla-ish things. So if you like tart-ripe strawberries, you’d probably like this. This one would probably be pretty interesting iced as well. And maybe even sweetened a little bit, if you want it to have more of a sweeter strawberry flavor.

Overall, though, I think this is a great herbal to relax with and sip. I actually feel like it’s more of a daytime tea than a nighttime one, and it tastes very summary. It’s not particularly a favorite of mine, but I could see someone else really liking this one and getting into its unique flavor profile. It’s a bit fruity and one-note for me. I prefer a bit more body and oomph to my tea-drinking experience.

Swap from Meghann M

This was a very interesting tea, a nice smooth fresh strawberry (not sweet like a pie or candy), with a hint of rooibos, then an aftertaste of light pepper.

I am enjoying my cup, I don’t think I’ll buy it again, but I am very much enjoying this.

The kept saying Rooibush, I am assuming this is the same as Rooibos.

Post-Steep Additives: none


Resteep: 5 min, very weak, a few more minutes and it was peppery rooibos the strawberry seems to be subdued


Meghann M

I wonder if Rooibush is a combo of honeybush and rooibos? That’s what came to mind when I read it. Although not sure how different they are?


i have had both…and i couldn’t tell the difference perhaps it’s time to wikipedia

Thanks to LiberTEAs for this one…It’s not bad but it is not overly flavorful with the flavors – so to speak…I knew both the strawberry and pepper were there but they were both very subtle. I would have LOVED to taste it again if those two flavors were to pipe-up-a-bit!

This is a lovely tea! If you like the idea of sweet strawberry with a bite you should try this one.
The strawberry taste is rich, sweet, and very authentic. The aroma is fully fruity and redolent of a strawberry grove in full season. The pepper comes out as a robust and pleasingly biting counterpoint to the sweetness of the tea.

I’m sure it could sustain milk and sugar but I did not need any.
