I only bought a small amount of this (something like 12g) and have made several pitchers of iced tea with it. I will be buying more because I’m loving the strawberry.

This is the freshest strawberry flavour I’ve come across so far. The hibiscus is too sour, but you can add sweetener or brew this in lemonade for something less tart. I can’t say I taste any tea at all, and you don’t see much tea in it either. It is more of a herbal than a white tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Passion Fruits, Sour, Strawberry, Tropical

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I feel like the fact that this was labelled a “white tea” was the worst part of the blend. For a fruit tea, it wasn’t bad!

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
