Dry, this really does smell like strawberry candy. It’s the only palpable fruity note in the tea.
Steeped, I find that the aroma stays the same, and the main note I can taste is the strawberry. The raspberry is barely there. It’s a bright blend that evokes an image of bright red. I haven’t tried this iced, although I’d imagine it would taste pretty good. Hot, it’s great if you’d like a green tea with a hint of tangy berries.
Overall, I can see why this is a popular green tea blend at Tea Desire, but I just don’t find it enticing enough to reach for my pouch and brew this on a regular or semi-regular basis.
