From TeaSource

This caffeine-free herbal tea will steep up full-bodied with a deep ruby red appearance. The flavor is sweet and creamy with a little extra depth, like a strawberry malted milkshake tea. This is a wonderful tea hot, and is great when poured over a tumbler full of ice.

The base of this herbal tea is rooibos. Rooibos is 100% caffeine-free. All rooibos comes from the Republic of South Africa, typically from the western mountainous region around Cedarburg. It has been drunk as an herbal tea for centuries in this area, and it is produced and served in a manner similar to traditional English-style black tea, up to and including the adding of milk and sugar to a hot cuppa.

Suggested Steeping Instruction: Use 1 rounded tsp per 8oz boiling water. Steep 4-6 min.

Ingredients: Organic Rooibos, Natural Flavor, Organic Strawberry, Organic Raspberry Leaves.

This is one of my oldest teas, and yet somehow I’ve yet to manage to get around to reviewing it. Welp, I guess I should rectify that, since I’m working on sipping it down.

This tea has a very strong sweet strawberry aroma in the bag, but I honestly find the flavor a bit underwhelming; then again, I have found my flavored rooibos blends seem to not hold strong flavors due to aging the most so far, so for my next pot, I may try adding an extra helping of leaf to see if that helps compensate some. The rooibos itself has a pretty strong flavor to me, it’s edging a little more on woody/medicinal/herbaceous, though the tea itself is very sweet with a subtle vanilla note. The strawberry is present, but there isn’t a strong, creamy vanilla note, so I don’t really get “strawberries and cream” at all, and the strawberry doesn’t feel strong, juicy, and defined against the rooibos base… and I’ve had strawberry rooibos teas like that. This just doesn’t hold a candle to Bird & Blend’s Rhubarb & Custard, which did the strawberry/cream rooibos so well. I believe TeaSource discontinued this one, but I have a very similar blend in my cupboard called Lavenderberry, which tasted like strawberries, vanilla, and a touch of lavender, and I remember it being quite lovely. I wonder if they tweaked the recipe, got a different flavoring for the strawberry, or if the age just made that much of a difference? I may have to make a pot of that tea again to jog my memory and see if I still like it as much as I remember…

This isn’t so bad that I won’t be able to finish it off, but it’s just so underwhelming compared to other better teas I’ve had with this flavor profile. It just feels so weak on the strawberry and cream elements it is supposed to be bringing out, so I feel like I’m just having a pot of rooibos. I like rooibos fine, but if I’m going to have rooibos, then I’d rather not have a very weak fruit flavoring in it, since I feel like that is probably what is bringing out the medicinal qualities.

Really didn’t like this one. It has a sharp, medicinal overtone, and the strawberry flavors are mostly lost. Was better with sweetener and milk, but still not my thing.
